If you thought you’re safe when you shut down your computer or smartphone, then you really need a wake-up call. The latest cyber security defense and offense technology have already been tried and tested on things that may just be used to make a simple cup of coffee.
That’s right, there is a chance that even your coffee machine is spying on you provided that it is connected to the internet of things. If your home appliance can connect to other devices such as your phone or home PC, then it pretty much is open for anyone to use to collect data. You never know your coffee machine may even be recording your routine.
An appliance such as these is commonly seen in corporations because even big corporations need to defend themselves against employees who may turn to whistle blow.
