not surprising, anything connected to your network going through your router should be locked down and secured. companies need to make their "smart" devices better with proper security, or people need to learn to setup their hardware firewalls properly on their router. this is why network security (my business) is the future and why more people need to be aware of these issues

 

it's funny but it's scary at the same time, your fridge is part of a botnet... when you ask "why is my internet so slow???" :P

I've been waiting for this so long.  First wireless, now the internet of things!?  I'm so excited. Maybe that DDoS on github is coming in part from an army of refrigerators, haha, what an amazing world.

LMAO, That's hilarious.

Well, Gullible people are hilarious. Although i happen to be one of those people.

 

 

Future is scary in some ways ;)

That it is but that may simple just be because it's a change from how we live and how we are used to living and doing things.

We are naturally afraid of change, At least in terms of how drastic that change may be.

I was going to make my entire house wireless and love the locks for the home they have but this is the exact reason why I won't yet if ever. At least opening a bump resistant lock takes some visible effort to anyone going by whereas a hacked door would look like the person fits in with walking right in.

I have a lot of "smart home" stuff in my home. The way I look at it, if a pro is going that lengths to get into my home, they are getting in regardless. I do my best to keep the place locked down and secure but you can only protect against so much. The chances of being robbed by a tech smart person compared to the average crook is rather slim still.
