Sony IPELA Backdoor

Numerous sites now report that a backdoor has been found in several Sony IPELA cameras. 

You can update the firmware, but as self-proclaimed Messiah of IP video says: “Firmware is updated all the time, just like on a PC, and a backdoor could be injected at any point during this process” (I am still not sure if this is an attempt at humor or evidence of gross incompetence).

From the reddit post on the backdoor, you can find a link to a site that lists a lot of decrypted firmware files. These decrypted files are scanned for vulnerabilities just like sec-consult did.
