The Federal Trade Commission continues to pursue companies with “inadequate” data security practices.  The latest data security settlement announced involves TRENDNet, Inc., which sells Internet-enabled video equipment that allow consumers to remotely view their baby monitors, home security cameras, and the like.  The FTC alleged that while TRENDNet promoted its products as secure, some of those products had faulty software that allowed anyone to access online the live feed that the cameras transmitted.  The company also transmitted user login credentials in the clear.  Hackers took advantage of the flaws and accessed and posted links to live feeds from hundreds of cameras.  The settlement marks the first time the FTC has settled with a retailer over a commonly used consumer product that transmits data over the Internet – commonly referred to as the “Internet of things.”
