Apparently more and more IoT devices get attacked – the latest report was on appliances (the white ones):

Fremdbestimmt: Hacker nutzen selbst smarte Waschmaschinen aus, um darüber beispielsweise DDoS-Angriffe auszuführen.

I really think we need better law’s for connected devices!

My proposal:

  • a centralized kill switch – and really good rules for safety relvant devices
  • Devices that are not maintened or updated with patches should be forced by law to go offline after warning users
  • And a certification for “secure and save” device

What do you think?
