Millions of Americans have already been hacked, and attacks are steadily increasing, a new study from internet hosting and research firm Akamai showed, and this is creating new problems and anxieties for homeowners.

In the past, it was clear when a break-in had occurred — a window was smashed, or perhaps a door forced open — but today technology is making privacy invasion more insidious. A smart door can be unlocked remotely with no signs of forced entry, cameras can be hacked and homes monitored without user knowledge, and connected refrigerators can be infiltrated to spy on spending and food habits.

Researchers at Saarland University found that hackers could use basic equipment to access home automation systems, which can reveal a lot about the inhabitants’ behaviors and habits. You want the added convenience of home automation, without the risk. We’ve got several ways to help you defend your system from potential hackers.

the world’s leading cyber minds aren’t just focusing on international super-hackers and possible future attacks on the PCs or electric grid. Do you know what else they’re worrying about?

Build a Better Coat Rack – Stop Home Hackers



With the explosion of “Internet of Things” products, devices, appliances and machinery (RSA predicts 4.9 million “connected things” this year), everything from Amazon’s cute little “Dash” buttons to “smart” toilets, self-diagnosing refrigerators and self-driving cars, there is growing concern that this rush of technological sophistication and convenience could also have dire consequences for personal security.People, not computers, create computer threats. Computer predators victimize others for their own gain. Give a predator access to the Internet — and to your PC — and the threat they pose to your security increases exponentially. Computer hackers are unauthorized users who break into computer systems in order to steal, change or destroy information, often by installing dangerous malware without your knowledge or consent. Their clever tactics and detailed technical knowledge help them access information you really don’t want them to have

Cyber Extortion and Cyber Ransom- Cybercriminals are increasingly using cyber extortion and ransomware to make money off of consumers and small businesses, and this is likely to continue as we move further into the Internet of Things. Today, cyber extortion is typically done through denial-of-service attacks or stolen data, and “ransomware” is a type of computer malware that locks up important files until the victim pays a ransom, typically between $900-1500. It won’t be as easy to perform these attacks on other devices, unless they have access to your PC — such as a smart TV for instance. Therefore, these attacks may be limited, but expect them to happen.


Account Hijacking- Forget about pacemaker cyber-attacks and remotely hijacked smart toilets. The most likely scenario for consumers, as their homes become inundated with Internet of Things appliances, is the account takeover. After all, for many of these fancy new Internet-connected devices, you’ll likely have to register for support or software updates. That means having a special GE or Bosch or whatever account. Account hijacks will primarily occur in two ways: data breaches at the corporate level that compromise a person’s account details (name, login/password, credit card, etc.) and targeted attacks on the person’s private email.


Worse Phishing Attacks- All of these accounts will also make you more susceptible to phishing emails, which will use fake customer support or warranty expiration notices to trick you into downloading malware. The primary goals will likely be the same as they are today: steal banking credentials, identity information or install remote backdoors on your home network.


Malware in the Home- For every new device that is connected to the web, expect a virus, worm or Trojan to target it. There are a number of reasons why criminals will want to infect your appliances with malware, but the main ones are: to rope your appliances into a “botnet” that can be sold or rented on the black market or steal information stored by the device, if such exists — such as account details or credit card numbers. Additionally, if your appliances are infected by a botnet, it could lead to Internet service providers blacklisting your home’s IP address, which means you could have trouble sending emails or using certain online services. If all of this sounds far-fetched, consider this: last year researchers discovered what is believed to be the first refrigerator botnet; and a top security firm recently released antivirus for the entire home.


History has taught us, never underestimate the amount of money, time, and effort someone will expend to thwart a security system. It`s always better to assume the worst. Assume your adversaries are better than they are. Assume science and technology will soon be able to do things they cannot yet. Give yourself a margin for error. Give yourself more security than you need today. When the unexpected happens, you will be glad you did.
