Ransomware may soon infect IoT; self-driving cars, smart homes.

Consider this, you are locked out of your house in a freezing cold weather or maybe driving a smart-car that is hijacked in the middle of 5 line traffic. To what danger can it be to have these items hijacked or locked out- for the purpose of making profit.

Let’s hope consumers roll-back in these devices and millions of dollars are lost in the event of security vulnerabilities. Of course, we are now aware of the massive manufacturing of self-driving cars and home automation devices made available daily in the market.
