Wyze Camera | What happened?

Dec. 26 - A Texas based consulting firm, Twelve Security, alerted that Wyze Cameras had been exposed in a data breach that affected its users (24%of which in the EST timezone). On the same day, Wyze’s CEO posted on the company’s forum that they had been alerted of the breach and were investigating the breach.

Dec. 27 – Wyze’s CEO updated his original post to confirm the data breach and to blame an employee for it. According to him, Wyze needs to “revisit all Wyze security guidelines in all aspects, better communicate those protocols to Wyze employees, and bump-up priority for user-requested security features beyond 2-factor authentication.”

Dec. 30 – New York Times published an article about the breach. Journalist Sandra E. Garcia interviewed Jennifer King, the director of consumer privacy at the Center for Internet and Society at Stanford Law School, who said “The more all of this data goes on the cloud, the more vulnerable we are. If the company isn’t necessarily practicing the best security practices you can do all you can and you’re still going to be exposed.”
