The Prophecies of Nostradamus Corrons

January 20, 2014 Leave a comment Go to comments

How’s this for prescience? Back in 2010, four whole years ago, PandaLabs‘ technical director Luis Corrons told me:

Everything is connected to everything else, and it’s all connected to the internet. I don’t know that we’re going to install anti-virus for the fridge, but who knows? If there are enough fridges connected to the internet, fridge malware will no doubt follow suit.

And this week’s big news? Well, this from Proofpoint:

The global attack campaign involved more than 750,000 malicious email communications coming from more than 100,000 everyday consumer gadgets such as home-networking routers, connected multi-media centers, televisions and at least one refrigerator that had been compromised and used as a platform to launch attacks.

Next week Mr Corrons plans to walk from Tarifa to Tangiers.
