Denial of Service attacks and how they are changing the Internet. in Software Posted September 24, 2016 Is the answer to make manufactures of IoT devices more responsible for the security of the 'things' that they put out there? They wouldn't get away with selling something that was electrically unsafe, there are laws in (almost) every country against that. So why should they be able to provide stuff that is internet unsafe? Looks like a case for adding internet safety into existing product safety legislation? Probably be a nightmare to legislate for and enforce though. PS Do you realy need your fridge to be able to 'talk' to your washing machine?
