It has been reported that consumer advocacy organisation Which? has issued a warning over the security of wireless camera brands made by China-based HiChip and urged the owners of more than 100,000 devices thought to be active in the UK to stop using their cameras immediately. The flaws affect both the devices themselves and their accompanying CamHi smartphone app, said Which?. The organisation worked to verify the flaw alongside security researcher and camera specialist Paul Marrapese, and found it in five cameras from OEM brands Accfly, Elite Security, ieGeek, Genbolt and SV3C. It may also exist in over 30 other brands that have been, at one time or another, sold into the UK. These include Alptop, Besdersec, COOAU, CPVAB, Ctronics, Dericam, Jennov, LETEK, Luowice, QZT and Tenvis.
