The malicious gang of smarties

Tech gurus are trying to convince us that soon everything will be connected to the internet. But bundling together smart phones, domestic appliances and underwear might not be such a good idea.

Recently a weird collection was put together to create a malicious network. Instead of enhanced functionality, media players, televisions, ovens and other smarties connected to the internet started sending emails around the world. Many of smart gadgets are lacking virus protection, a dream come true for hackers, who can turn them into zombie networks that do everything from sending spam to mining bitcoins.

Just imagine your embarrassment, when a smart bra sends spam to all you connections it has just been unhooked.
