Once again security researchers are revealing innovative ways that cyber criminals could potentially exploit with everyday IoT devices. This time the researchers have shown how smart light bulbs could be taken over.
As Freddy Mercury once said, "Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? Caught in a landslide. No escape from reality."
A research team has set up a chain reaction attack that would take over Philips Hue smart lightbulbs across entire cities Researchers showed that they could hijack the bulbs from nearly half a kilometer away Researchers have developed a proof-of-concept attack on smart lightbulbs that allows them to wirelessly take control over the bulbs from up to 400m
