Nothing new here, only confirming what should already be known to most. The source 1511.03609v1.pdf was an interesting read though as it gave backround information. Thanks for linking to it :flower:
For more information, I would recommend an interesting book I did read on the subject:
Nitesh Dhanjani - Abusing the Internet of Things, Blackouts, Freakouts, and Stakeouts, August 2015.
"Major security breaches are near-daily events in the news. The frequency and scale of these breaches has made us somewhat numb. As modern societies, we have come to accept that the benefit we receive from adopting innovative technologies exceeds their cost and risk (at least in the short term)." - Taken from the foreword.
Quite interesting 300 page read for anyone interested in the internet of things and the security.
