Revoked Certificate when viewing mydlink IP Cameras with-in web-browsers

D-Link recently discovered that two of its code signing certificates were misappropriated. Upon discovery, we immediately decommissioned the certificates and investigated the issue. Like several other companies in Asia, D-Link was victimized by a highly active cyber espionage group which has been using PLEAD Malware to steal confidential information from companies and organizations based in East Asia, particularly in Taiwan, Japan, and Hong Kong. The two affected D-Link certificates were revoked, effective July 3rd, 2018. New certificates have been issued to resolve this problem.

Most D-Link customers will not be affected by this issue. However, if you have concerns, please check your mydlink mobile application,  your local D-Link Support website, or http://www.mydlink.com.

 

Recommendations:

 

1. New firmware for affected models are being developed and tested.  The mydlink mobile application will notify you to update for registered cameras in the event of a new firmware release.

 

2. This issue will not affect the mydlink mobile applications.  This certificate revocation affects viewing and configuring the camera from within a web-browser.

 

3. if you require the use of the web-browser, you can reconfigure your browser temporarily to ignore the revoked cert.

Please note regarding option 3: These settings should be treated as temporary. We recommend only reconfiguring

your system during the use of the camera through a web-browser, and then returned back to default for validating the certicate.
