Your smart focus can reveal your WiFi password

With the advent of the Internet of Things, much has been what has begun to revolutionize to change everyday life as we know it. Appliances, bells, plates, contacts and even spotlights already have a presence within the internet network in some homes to facilitate or improve their usability.

In terms of security, we know that each of these gadgets has to have if or if access to our internet network and therefore they should have a security protocol to avoid bad practices. About this topic on the site of Limited Results they performed a test in which they destroyed literally a light bulb of the LIFX brand and they were in charge of proving that their security was not so good since they managed to extract from it the Wifi password of the network to which it was connected.

Well, shortly after they mention that the company fixed the problem through a firmware update. Anyway, it is not that someone will come to our homes to destroy the lights or devices to obtain the password of our network, but that these practices could evolve and leave back doors to access more specific information of the users do not believe it?

Surely according to Internet of Things expand in a greater way we will see the mandatory implementation of these protocols. Don't you think about this? Do not forget to let us know what you think about it in the comment box, we are reading.
