           - Exploit 1 :: The use of the basic authentication for the devices command interface allows attack vectors that may compromise the cameras configuration and allow malicious users on the LAN to access the device. The last know firmware for the devices do enable digest-authentication to help mitigate this issue. Please see exploit 2 for digest-authenication vulnerability.


        - Exploit 2 :: the use of the digest-authentication for the devices command interface may allow further attack vectors that may compromise the cameras configuration and allow malicious users on the LAN to access the device.


In order to mitigate these issues the device would need to support https.

Recommendation for End of Support /End of Life Products

From time to time, D-Link will decide that some of its products have reached End of Support ("EOS") / End of Life (“EOL”). D-Link may choose to EOS/EOL a product due to evolution of technology, market demands,  new innovations, product efficiencies based on new technologies, or the product matures over time and should be replaced by functionally superior technology.


For US Consumer  

If a product has reached End of Support ("EOS") / End of Life ("EOL"), there is normally no further extended support or development for it.


Typically for these products, D-Link will be unable to resolve device or firmware issues since all development and customer support has ceased. 


D-Link strongly recommends that this product be retired and cautions that any further use of this product may be a risk to devices connected to it. If US consumers continue to use these devices against D-Link's recommendation, please make sure the device has the most recent firmware, make sure you frequently update the device's unique password to access its web-configuration, and always have WIFI encryption enabled with a unique password.
