VR Model P1 - 360 Degree Camera


What is a VR Camera?

In photography, an omnidirectional camera, or “Omni” for all-encompassing, is a camera equipped with a 360-degree field of view in the horizontal plane. This capability allows for a visual field that covers the entire sphere, approximately. Such cameras are crucial in areas requiring broad visual coverage, like panoramic photography and robotics.

Security Assessment Overview

During the security assessment, I connected the device via Ethernet, which assigned it an IP address. A scan of this IP address revealed several open ports, including 21 (FTP), 23 (Telnet), and 6789. Notably, port 21 permitted anonymous FTP access, allowing direct access to the device’s filesystem.


  • FTP Access: The device’s filesystem was accessible without authentication via FTP, revealing firmware details and allowing for firmware downloads.
  • Filesystem Analysis: Deep analysis of the downloaded firmware exposed hardcoded credentials within the etc/password and etc/shadow files, as well as MD5 hashed passwords. Additionally, JFFS filesystem files contained remote FTP server IP information and credentials.
  • Wi-Fi Password Exposure: The router’s Wi-Fi password was found in plaintext within the /tmp/wifi_info directory.
  • Web Interface Vulnerability: The device’s web interface was susceptible to unauthorized access. It was possible to bypass login credentials and directly access the admin control panel by navigating to specific URLs, such as

This detailed assessment underscores the critical importance of stringent security practices in the development and deployment of IoT devices. The vulnerabilities identified, ranging from unauthorized access to sensitive information disclosure, highlight the potential risks associated with inadequate security measures.
