Vulnerable peer-to-peer software exposes consumer and small-business IoT devices to compromise. A hacker says he’s hacked automotive GPS trackers, all for the good, of course, and could even turn off a car’s engine. Not, you know, that he would. Sri Lanka warns of the possibility of more violence, and journalists wonder if prior restraint of certain speech might be worth considering. Curating app stores for security. And potty-mouthed eScooters on Brisbane streets. Joe Carrigan from JHU ISI on Facebook’s continuing privacy violations, potential FTC fines and PR woes.
