Quote:
98 per cent of all IoT device traffic is unencrypted.


This is absolutely shocking news. It implies that 2% of Internet of Sh*t duhvelopers would score at least 1 point on a security 101 exam. I had no idea that the number was so high.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
--Zachris Topelius

Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.
