The Internet of Things is far from secure. Don't trust me, just check the FBI, they are getting worried about this too. I have talked about hacks of Internet enabled devices before, (fridges, baby monitors, smart cars) , there's nothing better than an infographic to see the big picture. This one is fascinating.
According to Computer Science Zone, there are around 4.9 billion connected smart devices in use in 2015. This number is going to skyrocket to 25 billion in the next five years, a number which translates to 2.5 IoT-enabled devices for each person on Earth.
With data breaches growing by the year, in number and size, IoT devices will slowly become the target of hackers, micro-ransom infections of IoT devices are around the corner.
