The updated firmware that fixes this problem has been available on our website. The list of products affected by the vulnerability can be accessed through this Security Notification.

With this vulnerability we wanted to provide you the details and timeline to reassure you that Hikvision’s commitment to cybersecurity is strong.

In addition, Hikvision is a CVE Numbering Authority (CNA) and has committed to continuing to work with third-party white-hat hackers and security researchers, to find, patch, disclose and release updates to products in a timely manner that is commensurate with our CVE CNA partner companies' vulnerability management teams.
