Infected Internet devices. Distributed denial of service (DDoS). Domain name servers. Internet of Things (IoT). The IT jargon may make little sense to the man on the street who just want the Web gadgets they buy to work and not have to worry about the accompanying security issues.
… WHY SHOULD CONSUMERS CARE?
Mr Benjamin Ang, Senior Fellow of the Centre of Excellence for National Security (CENS) Cybersecurity Programme at S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies (RSIS), said consumers who have not changed the security settings on their Web-connected cameras such as a security camera or baby monitor should be “very concerned”. This is because these devices can be found and accessed by hackers using tools that are available online, such as Mirai.
