From Wired Article: Tripwire security researchers found the Google Home and Google Chromecast could leak location data through unauthorised network connections. The IoT’s security issues run much deeper.
The Internet of Things (IoT)security problem isn’t going away. The connected network of billions of devices – from smart doorbells to office printers – is regularly found to have privacy problems and be open to attack by potential hackers.
The latest of these incidents? Google’s artificial intelligence Home speaker and the Chromecast, the firm’s streaming device, have been found to reveal a user’s precise physical location. Revealed by Tripwire security researcher Craig Young, the bug can make a person’s location known to an accuracy of around 10 metres.
