Re: Singapore Tops at Cybersecurity
Agreed. Most people don't get that the news only puts out what they want us to see..

The proliferation of fake news and the people believing it is becoming more problematic by the day it seems.

No doubt there, the more data they can collect to sell the bigger they get.

Re: Singapore Tops at Cybersecurity
..Thanks for the link--yes indeed aware of that as well as part of my on-going research and engagement in support of the startup I work for -it has been something we've deliberated here in TT..and just as a point of historical reference--remind all of the DDOS attack last year that caused so much havoc.  Whoever figures out this puzzle will have a goldmine--right?

Re: Singapore Tops at Cybersecurity
@mpouraryan yes, smart homes present a lot of entry points for hacking, and it's not limited to actual homes. There was a report on a smart aquarium that left a casino vulnerable to hacking here: http://money.cnn.com/2017/07/19/technology/fish-tank-hack-darktrace/index.html

Re: Singapore Tops at Cybersecurity
Yes..>I've been aware of it...and as an FYI, it was either the Dialy Telegraph or the Daily Mail...(Hope someone has the time to share.......kind of running right now) headlining a story in tomorrow Edition in the UK that Smart Homes may be vunerable to hacking in such a way that account numbers can be accessed--we have to be vigliant in every which way.

Re: Singapore Tops at Cybersecurity
@mpouraryan did you see the article about the Roomba collecting data? It's at https://www.theverge.com/2017/7/24/16021610/irobot-roomba-homa-map-data-sale

In 2015, iRobot introduced the Roomba 980, its first W-Fi-connected model. This meant that while a Roomba was quietly whirring around your floors, it was also collecting spacial data using visual localization, sensors, and more. This data helps the Roomba figure out how your home is laid out and adjust cleaning patterns on-the-fly to deal with things like moved furniture. But Angle thinks it could be put to use by more devices.

"There's an entire ecosystem of things and services that the smart home can deliver once you have a rich map of the home that the user has allowed to be shared," Angle told Reuters. Angle says that this data won't be sold without permission, but Reuters says he thinks "most would give their consent in order to access the smart home functions."
