Researchers at the Florida Institute of Technology discovered "critical cryptographic flaws" in the smartphone companion apps of 16 popular smart home devices.
The researchers performed "man-in-the-middle" attacks on 20 Internet of Things (IoT) devices and found that 16 device vendors have not implemented security measures to prevent attackers from intercepting IoT communications.
Affected devices identified include the Amazon Echo, Blink camera, Google Home camera, Hue lights, Lockly lock, Momentum camera, Nest camera, NightOwl doorbell, Roku TV, Schlage lock, Sifely lock, SimpliSafe alarm, SmartThings lock, UltraLoq lock, and Wyze camera, among others.
The researchers found that Arlo, Geeni, TP-Link, and Ring devices were not susceptible to these attacks.
