Quotation of the Day for January 21, 2014

"The 'Internet of Things' holds great promise for enabling control of all of the gadgets that we use on a daily basis. It also holds great promise for cybercriminals who can use our homes' routers, televisions, refrigerators and other Internet-connected devices to launch large and distributed attacks."

- Michael Osterman, principal analyst at Osterman Research. An attack on Internet-connected devices in late 2013 and early 2014 resulted in 750,000 phishing and spam emails being sent from "thingbots", including televisions and refrigerators.
