Foscam C1 IP Camera FTP Hard Coded Password

critical Nessus Plugin ID 101547
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote host is running an FTP server that is using a hard-coded password.


Nessus was able to log in to the remote FTP server, using the username 'r' with the password 'r', and identify the remote server as a vulnerable Foscam C1 IP Camera. A remote attacker can exploit this to access its FTP service and the mounted Micro-SD card.


Update to firmware version V-2.x.2.43 or later.
