QOTD - Corman on e-Toasters

We’re putting IT on everything and while some people think IT on everything is a dream, I kind of think its a nightmare. If you have a toaster, there’s a certain risk that it will burn your house down. If you put software on it, it’s a vulnerable toaster. If you connect it to the Internet, its a vulnerable and exploitable toaster.
-- Josh Corman, Director of Security Intelligence at Akamai Technologies
