Multimedia devices for Small Office Home Office (SOHO) environments often use proprietary technologies but also a variety of commercially available technologies for their operation. Exploiting vulnerabilities on multimedia devices and implementations that are made for SOHO environments induce new risk trends but also are a pragmatic fact. For many manufacturers usability and user friendliness take precedence over the security on these implementations. Market expansion and propagation that introduces a vast number of such devices to almost any SOHO network are also aggravating factors.
