What’s worse than the average data breach? A breach that involves our childrens’ private information!
In Monday’s episode, I talk about how a “greyhat” hacker stole over 190GBs of data from a company that makes an Internet-connected kid’s toy. Luckily, he doesn’t seem to plan on using the data with malicious intent. Nonetheless, it’s still an eye-opening hack. Watch the vlog to learn more about this attack, and why we all need to think about what types of data we share online.
Show note: This is Monday’s episode, but technical issues delayed my posting until today.
