Common Threats to IoT Devices & How to Protect Yourself

Recent years have seen the proliferation of IoT devices across the world, and the number of connected IoT devices is projected to amount to 75.44 billion worldwide by 2025. These devices offer improved connectivity to make homes more efficient and life much easier. However, their mode of functioning (data collection) is also their main security threat, and the fact that they run on limited resources makes it hard to secure them. Recently, a hacker released more than 515,000 Telnet credentials belonging to servers, home routers, and IoT devices. Your IoT devices can be exploited to spy on you or used in DDoS attacks, and it’s becoming increasingly important to ensure their security.
