Security news continues to ebb and flow around the DNS outage that was caused by an army of compromised “smart appliances” around the globe. Various security blogs and news outlets continue to cover the story.
One company, responsible for many of the parts that goes into these devices has declared that they will issue a recall, even while threatening various news sources with slander and/or libel suits. Hopefully, this level of news coverage will illustrate the importance of digital security for “smart appliance” makers in the future.
