iBoss blog: Hacking Your Network Through Smart Light Bulbs

Earlier this year I posted an entry about how the Internet of Things (IoT) can create all sorts of insider threats.  Sadly, this is becoming true faster than anyone has thought. Now connected light fixtures can be compromised, perhaps creating a new punchline to that age-old joke: “How many security managers does it take to screw in a lightbulb?” Only, no one is really laughing. Security researchers at Rapid7 have found nine different vulnerabilities with using the Sylvania Osram Lightify smart bulbs. I talk about which ones of these you should be concerned with if you have these lights in your buildings in my latest blog for iBoss.
