Midas Security Notification
We recently discovered a potential security vulnerability in our Midas Gas Detector transmitter (part number MIDAS-T-004).
Honeywell has prepared a free, downloadable security patch to correct the issue.
In addition to installing the security patch, Honeywell strongly recommends that customers with affected products take the following additional steps to protect their devices:
- Passwords should always be used on installations of Midas to prevent unauthorized access.
- Allow only trained and trusted persons to have physical access to their system, including devices that have connection to the system though the Ethernet port.
- If possible, isolate your system from the Internet or create additional layers of defense by placing the affected hardware behind a firewall or into a DMZ.
- If remote connections to the network are required, consider using a VPN or other means to ensure secure remote connections into the network the device is on.
