#IoT devices "being ravenously hunted for sport right now"

Internet of Things devices are being ravenously hunted for sport right now. You need to be vigilant and make sure your devices don’t fall foul to attacks like brickerbot or become a part of the latest IoT botnet . There will be more attacks like this to come in the future. Get ahead of the curve by learning about security and keeping your devices locked down. If you are serious about cyber security, start reading up about the latest trends as there are new vulnerabilities found daily. If you make devices for others then you must become an expert in these skills. If you can’t say that about yourself, hire some professionals. You don’t want a lawsuit, you don’t want to lose customer trust, and you don’t want to be building hardware that threatens our connected world.
