A report by Fortinet has revealed that the Internet of Things (IoT) is a big risk to business security, with half of the top 12 security exploits reported in the fourth quarter of 2018 relating to such devices. Four of these involved IP-enabled cameras, with criminals able to hack into them and view footage in many cases. Overall, the number of exploits were up 10% compared to the previous quarter, showing malicious actors certainly didn't take a break over the festive season.
