πŸ”— Japanese government plans to hack into citizens’ IoT devices

Many have argued that this is an unnecessary step, as the same results could be achieved by just sending a security alert to all users, as there’s no guarantee that the users found to be using default or easy-to-guess passwords would change their passwords after being notified in private.

Look, there is a certain merit to what the Japanese Government has proposed, however, it’s not a huge leap to suggest that this β€œaudit” will end up in the wrong hands at some point in time, nor that it will actually lead to people fixing their security flawed passwords.

Mark my words, this will not end well…and nor should it
