Title: Abode Systems home security kit could allow attacker to take over cameras, remotely disable them
Description: Cisco Talos recently discovered several vulnerabilities in the Abode Systems iota All-In-One Security Kit. This kit includes a main security camera and hub that can alert users of unwanted movement in their homes. It also includes several motion sensors that can be attached to windows and doors. The devices communicate with the user via a website or app on their mobile device and can connect to smart hubs like Google Home, Amazon Alexa and Apple Homekit. The vulnerabilities Talos discovered could lead to a variety of conditions, including providing attackers with the ability to change users’ login passwords, inject code onto the device, manipulate sensitive device configurations, and cause the system to shut down. The devices contain several format string injection vulnerabilities in various functions of its software that could lead to memory corruption, information disclosure and a denial of service. An attacker could send a malicious XML payload to trigger these vulnerabilities.

Title: Cisco warns of high-severity vulnerabilities in Identity Services Engine
Description: Cisco disclosed multiple vulnerabilities last week in its Identity Services Engine software. Two of the issues, CVE-2022-20822 and CVE-2022-20959, could be exploited to read and delete files on a targeted device, or to execute arbitrary code or access sensitive information. Cisco’s PSIRT team said it believes proof of concept code for the vulnerability will become available in the wild after the disclosures. However, there is no evidence of these issues being exploited in the wild.
