Spooked by a speaking security camera? Polite hacker tells owner how to fix his IoT security – HOTforSecurity | https://hotforsecurity.bitdefender.com/
The “white hat” hacker, who claimed to be part of a group calling itself the “Anonymous Calgary Mindhive”, said it hadn’t been hard for him to hijack control of Gregg’s Nest security camera.

But, claimed the unnamed hacker’s disembodied voice, his intention wasn’t to spy, steal, or instil fear:

“We don’t have any malicious intent, but I’m just here to kind of let you know so that no one else, like any black-hat hackers, follow. There are so many malicious things somebody could do with this.”

Gregg had made the mistake of using the same password to “secure” his IoT camera as he had used in online accounts. Like so many others, Gregg hadn’t recognised the danger of reusing login credentials and when a breach occurred at an online site, his login and password were leaked into the public domain.

Internet of Things Made Simple: One Sensor Package Does Work of Many
Even more advanced sensing can infer human activity, such as when someone is sleeping, showering, watching streaming video or has left home for work. Most of this processing occurs on the sensor platform itself, so detailed and sensitive data need not be transmitted or recorded, he added.

The sensor platform can be manually trained to recognize various phenomena, such as the cycling of water heaters or heating and air conditioning units. It also would be possible to pre-train the sensors to detect many popular devices and brands of home or office products, making it possible for the sensor platform to begin functioning as soon as it is plugged in, Laput said.
