There are a number factors as to why the IoT is becoming our number one cyber security vulnerability. One is they are usually made on the cheap, two they do not have enough code in them to provide a level of security, three they are often made in China, who is trying to undermine our nations cyber security, four even if not made in China the chips inside the devices often are made in China. Lastly many of us do not know the risks involved, and really want the new device to work easily, making it as they say plug and play. So often no passwords are even placed on the IoT devices. We all need to be careful when buying or using these devices, do we really need our Weight Scale to talk to us thru the Internet?
