Paul Oster, noted identity theft expert and credit authority joins us again. More and more appliances are being connected to the internet these days. I have an internet wired alarm clock. Others have internet connected refrigerators and coffee makers. Unfortunately, manufacturers have not built firewalls and other basic security into these devices which has left an opening for malicious hackers. Therefore, your internet enabled coffee pot could in fact lead them to all your credit cards and banking info. So be careful and change your passwords on a regular basis. It could be your only protection.
