Everybody is going in for "Smart" devices lately. There are apps to control your refrigerator, stove, washing machine, even your coffee pot! But, are these things presenting a back door for someone else to get into your world? You've probably heard about people listening in and talking on your Baby Monitor. Then there was a story a few years back, where someone could be driving down the road near you, and hack into your car's network through your car radio. Once in, they could access the brakes, gas pedal, whatever. Apparently, to someone experienced with embedded devices and the IoT technology, there is some fun and games to be explored. Enjoy this eye opener!
Maybe there is still some good in that Pyrex percolator or that French press! It can't turn on you!
