"The fresh smell of ransom coffee" presented at BSidesCanberra 2019

by Martin Hron,

Summary : Let’s have a look at how breaking best security practices in smart devices can potentially lead to serious consequences. This talk presents a case of a coffee maker where replacing a firmware can be done remotely without the user’s interaction. The point here is that these devices could be easily turned into a hidden spy, slowly exfiltrating data out of your perimeter or as a tool of extortion. However this talk is on a funny note, the message is clear if we won’t address security in IoT than we are facing a big problem in the future. Come and join me on this journey where S stands for security in IoT.
