ONEKEY's researchers recently disclosed security issues in Realtek chips that affect a long list of manufacturers: AsusTEK, Belkin, D-Link, Edimax, Hama, Logitec, Netgear, and many more equip their Wi-Fi devices with software development kits (SDKs) from Realtek. A vulnerability within the Realtek RTL819xD module allows hackers to gain complete access to the device, installed operating systems and other network devices.
A successful attack would provide full control of the Wi-Fi module, as well as root access to the embedded device’s operating system. There is currently far too little security awareness for IoT devices – neither among users, nor among manufacturers, who blindly rely on components from other manufacturers in their supply chain without testing them. As a result, these components or products become an unpredictable risk for companies across all industries.
