INTERNET OF THINGS (IOT) – HOW IT REALLY HAPPENED
In NINJIO’s Season 2, Episode 4, a CEO’s celebration takes an ugly turn as he begins to destroy his printer with a champagne bottle. Turns out, his printer, along with many other IoT devices caused the internet to crash and cost him a lucrative contract.

It is a must that you change the default username and password on any IoT device that you use.
