Researchers have discovered several high-severity vulnerabilities in a smart robotic vacuum cleaner. These vulnerabilities give unauthorized access to attackers who can take complete control of the device.
These attacks range from a denial-of-service that renders the device unusable, to viewing private home footage through the vacuum’s embedded camera.
During a conference in San Francisco, researchers explained that the device costs around €250 and comes with an app. This app has around six vulnerabilities which are giving unauthorized access to attackers. As of today, the manufacturers hasn’t reacted to these discloses.
