(Tech Cocktail, May 22, 2015) – Having a connected home is super cool, and it’s absolutely the way our society is trending these days. Before we know it the home will be filled with devices that fuel your personal Internet of Things (IoT), down to your refrigerator.
There are some out there who would look at this set up and, instead of a cool kitchen, would see a world of vulnerabilities and potential exploits. Now, I’ve never been one to subscribe to fear mongering, but I am all about pragmatism.
These IoT devices absolutely have security vulnerabilities, and that’s something that can’t be ignored. The problem is though, these vulnerabilities aren’t located in the software side of things – it’s the hardware that remains suspect number one.
