Tech makes for a home security headache

An Internet connected video camera seems like a good idea in theory after all, being able to check in on your home while you re away can enhance your peace of mind. But security researchers have shown that so called connected home devices often contain issues that could allow an attacker to compromise your privacy or security. In February, security firm Synack released a study on the issue. As our Paul Lilly reported at the time, Synacks research revealed a long list of issues, including open ports, built in backdoors, and lack of encryption. Just this month, researchers managed to hack into nine different Internet connected baby monitors a terrifying prospect for any parent. If an attacker finds a way to remotely control a connected home device on your network, they could potentially use it as a way to intercept personal information (such as usernames and passwords) from computers on your home network.
