Black Hat USA 2014 has closed and, as usual, shaken the public’s faith in technical security to the very core. The conference featured all manner of “hackers” breaking into systems that we would all rather have secure.
This year’s attacks moved beyond hacking computers and phones and dived headfirst into the “Internet of Things”, compromising the security of objects in our everyday lives. Read on to discover the alarming possibilities of someone hacking your thermostat, your hotel room or even your pacemaker.

These devices will soon be contained within your coffee machine, your car, your thermostat, your dishwasher and your fridge. The Internet of Things will enable a greater degree of connectivity and automaticity in our daily lives than anything before.
