A collage of various devices that not only can be hacked, but already have been.

Devices that have been hacked

Welcome to the IoT Hall-of-Shame
With the rise of internet enabled devices in the Internet of Things or IoT the need for software security is becoming even more important. Unfortunately many device makers seem to put security on the back burner or not even understand the basics of cybersecurity. Some call it the Internet of Evil Things.

I am maintaining here a list of known hacks for “things” (Iot, IIoT, SCADA, ICS) based on the date that the hack was published. Please assist – if you’re aware of additional “thing”-hacks please let me know in the comments at the bottom of the page or on Twitter.
