Submission + - One Ring to pwn them all a.k.a. the BackDoorbot

An anonymous reader writes: A flaw in the IoT doorbell, Ring, was revealed recently that allows a visitor to steal your home WiFi password from your doorstep, without ringing the bell & without leaving traces of an attack

Although the announcement was made a few weeks back, a more recent post revealed that the flaw was in fact disclosed to Ring in March last year but wasn't fixed by the vendor

Here an attacker can be seen grabbing the owner's home WiFi password using only a screwdriver, a pin and a mobile phone

Yet another piece of bad news for IoT Security.

Good point. If Net Neutrality ever fails in favor of providers offering streaming service to THEIR streaming content and filtering out competition, then Netflix will long for the days when they had a business model that cost an extra $700 mil per year to give them access to customers.
