A recent report from Gartner is sounding the alarm about the burgeoning threat from IoT.
I've been riding this horse for a long time now. But recently, attacks on these systems are headlining the mainstream media: hijacked baby monitors, hijacked cars and drones, hacked medical devices, ... Attacks are limited only by the imaginations of the hackers, which seems endless.
