This Guy Tore Down The Canon EOS R5 And Made Some Modifications

Canon Eos R5 Overheating

Someone wanted to see how the Canon EOS R5 looks on the inside and so he tore it down.

A Chinese guy (an engineer?) tore down the Canon EOS R5. He applied thermal paste on the CPU in order to dissipate more heath. It’s not clear from the video if this solution works but it is cool to see how the R5 looks inside.

The EOS R5 seems to be a remarkable and highly regarded stills camera. In particular, the autofocus system is a huge leap forwards. More Canon EOS R5 review stuff is listed here, for the EOS R6 see here. User manual are available for download for the EOS R5 and the EOS R6.

Canon Has Been Hacked And Hit By Ransomware, 10TB Data Stolen

Coronavirus Covid-19 Ransomware

Canon has been attacked by the Maze ransomware group. Many Canon sites are affected.

As BleepingComputer reports, numerous Canon services have been affected, including Canon’s email, Microsoft Teams, the Canon USA website, and other internal applications. These Canon related domains have been affected:

www.canonusa.com
www.canonbroadcast.com
b2cweb.usa.canon.com
canondv.com
canobeam.com
canoneos.com
bjc8200.com

BleepingComputer was able to obtain a partial screenshot of the ransom note:

Reports BleepingComputer about Maze and the attack against Canon:

After contacting the ransomware operators, BleepingComputer was told by Maze that their attack was conducted this morning when they stole “10 terabytes of data, private databases etc” as part of the attack on Canon […]

Maze is an enterprise-targeting human-operated ransomware that compromises and stealthily spreads laterally through a network until it gains access to an administrator account and the system’s Windows domain controller.

During this process, Maze will steal unencrypted files from servers and backups and upload them to the threat actor’s servers.

Once they have harvested the network of anything of value and gain access to a Windows domain controller, Maze will deploy the ransomware throughout the network to encrypt all of the devices.

If a victim does not pay the ransom, Maze will publicly distribute the victim’s stolen files on a data leak site that they have created.

Maze has claimed responsibility for other high-profile victims in the past, including LG, Xerox, Conduent, MaxLinear, Cognizant, Chubb, VT San Antonio Aerospace, the City of Pensacola, Florida, and more.

The Canon USA site is still down. It seems this attack is not related to the image.canon outage of a few days ago. Canon released a statement to BleepingComputer, saying they are “currently investigating the situation.”

image.canon Is Live Again, Confirms Some Files Got Lost

Image.canon

image.canon is up and running again after being unreachable for almost a week. Canon confirms that some of the photo and video image files got lost.

Canon released this statement:

Important user update concerning image.canon

August 4, 2020

Thank you for using image.canon.

On July 30, 2020, we identified an issue involving the 10GB long-term storage on image.canon. In order to conduct further investigation, we temporarily suspended both the mobile application and web browser service of image.canon. After the investigation, we identified that some of the photo and video image files saved in the 10GB long-term storage prior to June 16, 2020 9:00am (JST) were lost. We confirmed that the still image thumbnails of the affected files were not affected, and there was no leak of image data.

After having resolved the issue that resulted in the loss of the photo and video image files, we resumed the image.canon service as of August 4, 2020.

Currently, the still image thumbnails of these lost image files can be viewed but not downloaded or transferred. If a user tries to download or transfer a still image thumbnail file, an error message may be received. We are currently exploring technical counter measures.

Automatic transfer of still image and video files from EOS R5 and R6 mirrorless cameras, as well as the instant uploads from compatible Canon cameras is also available.

Canon contact details can be found here: image.canon/st/supported-countries.html.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

image.canon Is Down, Some Photos And Videos Have Been Lost

Image.canon

Well, this is not good marketing for Canon’s cloud platform image.canon.

Not only is the portal down since 4 days, but as it appears by a statement by Canon itself “[s]ome of the original photo and video data files have been lost”. At the time of writing it is not clear what caused the site to be down and the loss of data. Canon refers to “an issue within the 10GB long term storage on image.canon” but is not clear what exactly it means or what caused the issue.

Important Notice

Thank you for using image.canon.

On the 30th of July, we identified an issue within the 10GB long term storage on image.canon. Some of the original photo and video data files have been lost. We have confirmed that the still image thumbnails of the affected files have not been affected.

In order to conduct further review, we have temporarily suspended both the mobile app and web browser service of image.canon.

Information regarding the resumption of service and contact information for customer support will be made available soon.

There has been no leak of image data.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

image.canon was activated in April 2020 as replacement for the Irista service.
