A Lot Of Questions About The Security Of Consumer Products

As someone who is pretty cynical about computer security in general, I am disappointed but not too surprised about recent tales of digital toys and other "connected' devices being insecure and generally poorly thought out. Hello Barbie has some gaping vulnerabilities, as is VTech's Android tablet for kids. VTech themselves exposed millions of customers' data from their website, and many other consumer platforms are also rife with security holes (and often these are old vulnerabilities).

It does little to alleviate my skepticism.
