Europol warns: Death caused by an internet-connected device may happen within the year

EC3 has published a report which states that internet-connected devices will be used for life threatening attacks. The report has been published on the Drupal EC3 website which you can find here.

The Europol report contains various chapters which I urge you to read.

Chapter 4 - Facilitators and relevant factors
Chapter 4 – Facilitators and relevant factors

It will provide you good insight in the view of Europol on internet-connected devices.

Remember Barnaby Jack? He had made a Proof of Concept which supported his warning; that he was able to deliver a fatal dose of enzyme via the diabetic insulin pump. He was able to do this by simply using internet-connected devices.
