TRENDnet IP Camera Hack Statement
Trendnet (1/22/2013)

Upon awareness of a TRENDnet IP camera hack in February 2012, TRENDnet initiated every effort to immediately respond to and resolve the threat. TRENDnet immediately released updated firmware which eliminated the published hack for all related product models. TRENDnet recalled all affected products and dedicated substantive resources to bring awareness to the need for a firmware update. Starting February 2012 and continuing through to the present, TRENDnet publicized IP Camera firmware update remedies through the media, through retail and distribution partners, through Internet service providers, and directly to end users. Additionally, TRENDnet forwarded a hack alert to over three hundred global internet service providers.

  • Cameras sold after February 2012 are not vulnerable to the hack.
  • Only select TRENDnet cameras sold between April 2010 and¬†February 2012 were affected. Cameras purchase before or after this period are not vulnerable to the hack.
