600,000 China-made GPS trackers have ’123456’ as default password

A report from Avast has claimed that around 600,000 GPS tracking devices are exposing the data they send to the cloud, after they were found to have been shipped to clients with the default password of ’123456’. Researchers found the problem affected more than 30 models of Chinese company Shenzhen i365-Tech’s GPS trackers.
