Popular hotel Internet gateway devices vulnerable to hacking

Lucian Constantin | March 30, 2015
Some Internet gateway devices commonly used by hotels and conference centers can easily be compromised by hackers, allowing them to launch a variety of attacks against guests accessing the Wi-Fi networks.

Cylance found 277 vulnerable InnGate devices in 29 countries that can be directly attacked from the Internet. Many of them were located in the U.S.

"Listing those vulnerable devices at this time would be irresponsible and could result in a compromise of those networks," Wallace said. "Take it from us that this issue affects hotel brands all up and down the spectrum of cost, from places we've never heard of to places that cost more per night than most apartments cost to rent for a month."
