“We are still a long way from makers of connected devices appreciating the security risks, let alone users appreciating them. Expect to see a lot more of these flaws exposed over the next couple years – hopefully by researchers rather than hackers.”

Hijacking baby monitors is a particularly chilling invasion of our privacy, but cameras and microphones are everywhere and the implications are huge, from secretly recording private business video-conferences to controlling CCTV cameras in secure environments.”[/su_note][su_box title=”About QinetiQ” style=”noise” box_color=”#336588″]QinetiQA FTSE250 company, QinetiQ uses its world class knowledge, research and innovation to provide high-end technical expertise and advice, to customers in the global aerospace, defence and security markets.
