Internet Of Things

This gadgets, this appliances, were elevated to the level of computers,
tablets and smartphones without the necessary protection against
hacking. Our refrigerators, cameras, DVRs and soon our cars are joining
us in the Internet and it is trivial to turn these against us. It looks
like a bad start for something so promising.

Is connecting and networking these things as hard as hacking them?
There's no doubt humans are in the Internet and they would want their
things with them. Some of us are just learning to swim and they are
loading sharks and other monsters into the pool. How can we turn it
around? The gadgets responsible for the DDoS were made by a single
manufacturer. So I guess they learned something very important. Have we
all learn the lesson?
