Bluetooth Vulnerabilities Allow Attackers to Compromise Nest Dropcams

Cyber security researcher Jason Doyle discovered a few months ago three critical vulnerabilities in the firmware of the webcams Dropcam and Dropcam Pro. The issues concern version 5.2.1 of the camera firmware, and according to the researcher's report, they allow potential attacks by crashing and stopping any footage recording through the devices' Bluetooth function. The vulnerabilities imply that the cameras are not sufficiently effective in keeping thieves away from any home or other building as they can be easily and wirelessly shut down by someone located within the BLE range of the webcam, which is mostly likely the case of criminals who are intending to break into your house. The first of the bugs described by Doyle allows an attacker to crash and reboot the webcam by triggering a buffer overflow through pinging an overlong Wi-Fi...
