Title: Welcome to the 21st Century
Post by: DigitalBuddha on January 18, 2014, 07:24:55 PM
Welcome to the 21st Century, where your refrigerator sends out fucking spam! :o

A fridge has been discovered sending out spam after a web attack managed to compromise smart gadgets.

The fridge was one of more than 100,000 devices used to take part in the spam campaign. Uncovered by security firm Proofpoint the attack compromised computers, home routers, media PCs and smart TV sets.

The attack is believed to be one of the first to exploit the lax security on devices that are part of the "internet of things".

I may design smart things, even Apple accessories, but anyone who thinks I'll have any of it in my house doesn't know me well.

I can't wait until we plug straight into the head for connectivity.

Wait until then for real spam problems, acid flashbacks posted to everyone on your friends list before you know about it.
