Resolution

This issue has been fixed in vcore Beta Upgrade Channel version 2.3.5 and Stable Upgrade Channel version 2.3.6.

We strongly recommend that all vcore installations running an affected version upgrade to the latest release as soon as possible. Releases are available to download through the vcore User Interface.

We also recommend changing the passwords of all configured credentials and all connected cameras.

Vulnerability Information

A logged in vcore user could download the configured camera credentials without the appropriate permissions via the vcore API and User Interface. However, this can be mitigated by the fact that cameras are typically deployed on private networks so an attacker should have limited access to the cameras.
