(Before It's News)


All of us have one or more Internet-connected devices – video cameras, DVRs, climate control and other “smart devices”. The WSJ reports that hackers might have infected yours.

How can you protect yourself?

You must constantly update the “firmware” (andn software) of all of your devices.

Updating your smart phone, computer, and all other devices is essential to better protect them. Hackers are on the prowl for vulnerabilities and vendors are on the prowl for securing their devices with new updates.

Beyond updating these devices, make sure that your network, devices and custom software are properly configured, hardened, against attack.

Update your devices and increase your security.
