China Hackers Hit U.S. Chamber of Commerce

According to this WSJ report, the attacks breached computer systems and stole email. And the story gets better.

"The Chamber continues to see suspicious activity, they say. A thermostat at a town house the Chamber owns on Capitol Hill at one point was communicating with an Internet address in China, they say, and, in March, a printer used by Chamber executives spontaneously started printing pages with Chinese characters."

A thermostat communicating with an IP address in China?! The interconnected, M2M, IoT world--what's not to love?
