Internet of Things Attacked by Hackers

Tech specialists have to admit that “smart” Internet-connected devices like webcams, printers and baby monitors are unable to resist cyberattacks that recently brought down the most popular websites in the world. Such devices usually connect to the worldwide web by default and use stock code from open-source software, thus being easy to hack.

The problem is that connected devices, including smart TVs or home lighting systems, are not smart enough to have safety software installed – at least because they don’t have enough memory.

A number of the most popular websites in the world were made inaccessible a few days ago, after the Internet of Things was exploited to overwhelm the US-based web infrastructure company with traffic from millions of IP-addresses. This is not the first time the connected devices are exploited: in 2014, a fridge, home routers and smart TVs were used to launch a spam email campaign.

Today the hackers presumably scanned the Internet for vulnerable devices, so the manufacturers are urged to pay more attention to security at the design stage, as the consumers have no idea how to secure these devices.

The main problem is that the general public does not understand how vulnerable connected devices are and do not change default passwords, which are easily hackable. This is why hackers turned to using such devices – because manufacturers were making PCs increasingly more difficult to hack. At the same time, it is unrealistic to expect designers to include traditional means of online protection into everyday household gadgets. Security experts suggest that manufacturers were needlessly over-equipping their connected products allowing to open things up to the broader Internet.
