Trying to get Philips to update there Hue Hub!

Hi people.

I have a Hue Bridge and have bin looking at the packages that are installed. Some of them seem to be very out of date. I would like to know if any one knows of any CVEs in any of the packages I will post the list at the end of this post. It is a old build of OpenWrt the Hue runs.

I know that not all old packages have bugs in, but I just would like to be able to get them to update the most inportant or risky ones.

EG TheHue is running kernel 4.4.60 and we are now on Kernel 4.4.295
Which packages should I get on to them about?

You should ask this question directly to Philips or on forums related to the Philips Hue platform.

This is the OpenWrt forum which focuses on the official OpenWrt firmware. Variants/branches created by other entities are not part of the scope here -- please contact the relevant maintainers for those versions.


Hi mate I am well awair of what forum I am on. I have bin nocking around the openwrt community for years now. :blush:

I was just after pointers of what to say to them.

I am after an angle of attack as such!

You can lookup CVEs and map them to the core components in their customized versions, but keep in mind that not all vulnerabilities in the components are relevant, as it depends on how things are configured, what services are exposed, what additional code they have added and how it interacts with the various components and many other factors.

Best option is to make a stink about it on their forums and other public places (reddit, etc.) to hopefully get them to release updates and security audits. Pressure from an upwelling of customer concerns will be much more effective than you personally trying to request updates/fixes.

OK I posted on Reddit.

This tread should at least be moved to the general question group.

Actually OpenWRT 21.02 runs on 5.4.
But 4.4 isn’t EOL yet.

What actual Philips firmware version do you have to begin with?

Hi I have November 1, 2021
Software version 1948086000

Well it is still Philips problem anyway.

But I would expect a hardware version 3 before a major upgrade to the firmware will be released. Philips is a stock company so they need people to buy new stuff from time to time so their revenue continues to grow.

But you don’t need the hub if you don’t want to.
You can run the light with Apple home or equivalent Android thing instead.

They need to update curl and libcurl 7.72.0
August 19 2020 to curl and libcurl 7.80.0
November 10 2021 This update alone would fix 73 security problems.
The is all so a update is out for openssl 1.1.1g-1 this would fix CVE-2020-1971) CVE-2021-23840) CVE-2021-23841) CVE-2021-3449) CVE-2021-3450) CVE-2021-3712) CVE-2021-3711)

Got a new update that showed up for me to day.

December 29, 2021
Software version 1949107040

Improved performance and reliability of the system

Looks like a more up-to-date build of openwrt.
