Samsung IoT Smart Home Security Hacked by Univ. of Michigan Researchers

IoT and Security (or lack of in this case).

It's going to be a while before IoT is fully hardened against attacks...

Here's a video of how the Samsung Internet of Things (IoT) Smart Home Security system was hacked by a professor at University of Michigan and his students. I received my B.S. in Electrical Engineering from U-M (Ann Arbor), so all I can say is, "Go Blue!".

Nice to see Univ. of Michigan students on the leading edge of technology research!


Samsung IoT Hacked by U-M

Cool investigation! It's obvious that IoT will have to rethink how security is done to make our devices more secure. Putting an extra layer to keep OAuth tokens from being accessed via spoofed Web sites will be a daunting task, but one that can been seen here as definitely required.
