Researchers show that IoT devices are not designed with security in mind

Lucian Constantin | April 8, 2015
An analysis of smart home devices has found flaws that could give attackers access to sensitive data or allow them to control door locks and sensors.

"I think these are common problems that would probably be shared across a lot of different embedded devices," he said.

The good news is that unlike routers for example, many of these IoT devices come with automatic update capabilities, so whenever an issue is found, the vendors can more easily distribute a fix. Veracode has already contacted the affected vendors and at least one of them, Wink, has already issued patches.
