Russian-based video surveillance

More than 825,000 subscribers and partners personal Records exposed online due to a misconfiguration with MongoDB that belonging to Russian-based video surveillance firm iVideon.

iVideon is multi-platform that allows subscribers to aggregate, access, view over the Internet, and record locally or to iVideon’s secure cloud storage, nearly any Internet-capable CCTV camera, DVR system, baby monitor, webcam, nanny cam, or even phone, computer, and tablet cameras. It supports for almost every available platform MacOS, Windows, Linux, IOS, and Android.

Kromtech Security Center detected the unprotected MongoDB open to the public. According to researchers the leaked iVideon’s database contains logins, email addresses, password hashes, server names, domain names, IP addresses, sub-accounts, software settings, and payment settings information (we did not see any credit card data) for both individual subscribers and partners.

Following are the database and records left unprotected online 12533
ivideon.servers: 810871 132
ivideon.users: 825388

Kromtech Security Center reported to iVideon about the exposed database and it was immediately taken down by the firm.

In response to Kromtech security, iVideon says “User info only included email, IP address and password hashes produced by a strong Bcrypt algorithm. No information related to payments, usage stats or means of getting access to user’s private data was present in the compromised DB.

Partner data seen in the DB was real, containing only partner companies’ names and UI settings for their apps.”

But it appears “did not look sanitized to us,” says Kromtech Security and they can see the password hashes, domain names, email addresses, server addresses, and other entries, all varied and appeared to be legitimate.

Also, it appears the database was compromised in some fashion and attackers and the attacker’s demand for .2 bitcoin ransom. The wallet they used appears received two payments.
