      Interview: Cesare Garlati, Chief Security Strategist, Prpl Foundation

      In 2016, the danger posed by the Internet of Things (IoT) became a reality. Add in factors such as the Mirai botnet and industrial control systems, and the problem becomes more than just Fitbits being connected to the network.

      The problem was countered with the first industry guidance in November 2016, when both the Department of Homeland Security and NIST issued documents on IoT: with the DHS advising manufacturers, services providers, developers and business-level consumers; while NIST went for more detail for manufacturers/developers with guidance on how to engineer safer products.

      DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson said that the “growing ...

      D-Link Bug Could Affect Over 400,000 IoT Devices

      It has been revealed that a previously disclosed serious vulnerability in D-Link IoT devices including baby monitors could affect more than 120 products around the world.

      The stack overflow bug can be exploited “with a single command which contains custom assembly code and a string crafted to exercise the overflow,” security firm Senrio claimed last month.

      It allows an attacker to set their own password for an affected device, effectively giving them remote access.
