Several users have been affected by a security fail using Mi Home Basic 1080p, through Google Home Hub. This fail allowed them to access to the video signal of other users with the same gadgets.

One of them made the security fail public on Reddit. The fail took place after a cache update on 26th December 2019 developed by Xiaomi when camera is connected to Google Nest.

As preventive measure, Google decided to block all Xiaomi’s Home and Assistant products, until installing a security update.

Xiaomi has already informed that the problem has been fixed and Google has already let interact with its products, except for the camera which caused the problem.
