Programmer and encryption expert Dmitry Sklyarov and his company, Elcomsoft, has found a vulnerability in Canon’s OSK-E3 system that is used to ensure that photos such as those used in police evidence-gathering haven’t been tampered with. To prove a point, the company created doctored photos that the technology thought were authentic. He offered some advice on how Canon could fix the issue in future cameras and also mentioned that Canon should “hire people who really understand security”. Canon didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
