It’s high time consumers stop using insecure IoT devices that aren’t implementing adequate safety and privacy measures – if they’re going to use them at all. Security researcher Paul Marrapese disclosed several alarming flaws impacting 2 million IoT devices back in April and hasn’t heard back from the manufacturers yet about whether they’re going to fix the issue.

The security flaws stated by the security researcher impacted 2 million devices and could potentially lead to dire consequences. It was revealed that these flaws could enable an attacker to spy on the owners or even hijack into their network for carrying out other malicious tasks.

While the vendors selling devices with serious security threats have failed to fix them or respond back, the fact that such vulnerabilities cannot be fixed through security patches is another alarming detail. It was found that the security issues in these IoT devices are nearly impossible to fix and discarding them altogether seems like the only viable step as of now.
