Security Analysis of the LIFX Smart Light Bulb
The security is terrible:
In a very
shortlimited amount of time, three vulnerabilities have been discovered:
- Wifi credentials of the user have been recovered (stored in plaintext into the flash memory).
- No security settings. The device is completely open (no secure boot, no debug interface disabled, no flash encryption).
- Root certificate and RSA private key have been extracted.
Boing Boing post.
