Hackers Could Turn LG Smart Appliances Into Remote-Controlled Spy Robot

This has to be the best IoT hack to date. Not only do you get access to the device and the camera, you can also send the camera around the home or business to see what ever you want to see. I love it. There is a quote from the article that really covers the whole IoT industry: If your smart devices are smart enough to make your life easier, then their smart behavior could also be exploited by hackers to invade your privacy or spy on you, if not secured properly.: If not secured properly is the big hitch, with limited program capability inside these devices, they are difficult if not impossible to secure at the device level. Since it is stated that this particular device can be hacked by itself, the device protection is key. In many cases if we can control the access to the device at the router level, the protection at the device level is not as important. But back doors to devices continues to be a problem.
