All IoT devices are potentially at risk of cyber attacks, warns Interpol

Interpol has warned that all IoT devices that are connected to the Internet are at risk of cyber attacks and that the threat from hackers has increased significantly in the past two years.

Interpol has called for a multi-stakeholder approach which will allow law enforcement authorities to collaborate with the private sector to detect and investigate cyber attacks on IoT devices.

Interpol has warned users of IoT devices across the world that their devices, ranging from smart wearables, refrigerators, webcams, smart TVs or other home appliances, are at risk of cyber attacks at all times and that their devices could be misused by cyber criminals for malicious means.
