Internet Crime Complaint Center, Internet of Things Poses Opportunities for Cyber Crime (Sept. 10, 2015) (full-text).

Overview Edit

This FBI alert warns companies and the general public to be aware of IoT vulnerabilities cybercriminals could exploit, and offers some tips on mitigating those cyber threats.

Deficient security capabilities and difficulties in patching vulnerabilities in these devices, as well as a lack of consumer security awareness, provide cyber actors with opportunities to exploit these devices. Criminals can use these opportunities to remotely facilitate attacks on other systems, send malicious and spam e-mails, steal personal information, or interfere with physical safety.
