How would you feel if you found out your new security webcam instead of protecting your family was part of a massive “botnet“ of enslaved devices sending out wave after wave of malicious Internet traffic to overwhelm popular websites? A bit uncomfortable? Actually, this isn't the plot for a new science fiction movie – a version of this actually happened on Friday October 21st. The term “Internet of Things” probably doesn't mean much to most people. And that’s probably ok. But as more and more of these devices get into peoples homes, you might ask yourself who is looking after the security of those devices. If I said it’s supposed to be you, you’d be forgiven if your first thought was, “Isn’t that the manufacturer’s responsibility?” I'd wager the vast majority of people have no idea how to change the security settings on network-enabled cameras, thermostats and other devices. They might be thinking that they probably came from the factory already secured and ready to go. But the reality is slightly different.
