The FTC complaint does not allege any breach of a D-Link Systems device. Instead, the FTC speculates that consumers were placed "at risk" to hacking, but fails to allege, as it must, that actual consumers suffered or are likely to suffer actual substantial injuries.
"The FTC complaint alleges certain security hacking concerns for consumer routers and IP cameras, and we firmly believe that charges alleged in the complaint against D-Link Systems are unwarranted," said William Brown, chief information security officer, D-Link Systems, Inc. "We will vigorously defend the security and integrity of our routers and IP cameras and are fully prepared to contest the complaint. Furthermore, we are continually working to address the overall security features of D-Link Systems' products for their intended applications and to regularly inform consumers of the appropriate steps to take to secure devices."
