This is a bit more current than routers being attacked. Like the routers, this type of attack is predictable. About 6 months ago some hacker got into an internet security video service. Fools bought the service so they can check on their house with their smart phone. They had no clue that hackers could use the surveillance cameras to case their house and rob it. The hacker could access any camera in the system. My home security company is pushing an internet service so you can turn on or off your system from a cell phone. How convenient! http://business.newsfactor.com/news/Internet-Devices-Lure-Hackers/story.xhtml?story_id=12200AVM016O People, do you really need to control your thermostate from your cell phone? I don't think I am any safer just because I am paranoid. It is just my nature as a programmer; many of us tend to be wound up more tightly than most.
