"The Honeywell Tuxedo Touch Controller web interface uses JavaScript to check for client authentication and redirect unauthorized users to a login page."

You'd think that a company like Honeywell would know better about security, especially as they have a whole cyber security division...

I'm sure they don't see any reason to expend such resources on the consumer space.

If the court is unable to understand the laws without Cliff's Notes, there's something wrong with the laws themselves.

Haven't we been reading about this for a few years now? LEO's not following the law when it comes to wiretaps and obtaining information from companies about customers they believe are connected to crimes they are investigating.

There's one thing missing in all these stories -- people at those agencies being held responsible for their actions.
