If you have to keep your Man in the Middle in the fridge, something's wrong.

Using Hillary's server to Internet-Enable the thing obviously posted for the world to see his credit card, expiration date and three digit code as well as his SS#, home address and home safe combo. Her wiping it clean with a soft cloth still managed to leave a painful rash.

All: the story relates to this other Samsung device's security issues.

Man-in-the-middle is an attack where the attacker secretly relays and possibly alters the communication between two parties who believe they are directly communicating with each other.

so this is like when a passing car opens your automatic garage door ?

I'll just hide quietly in the crisper.

Capt Obvious says, "Stay out of the middle."

It means that stuff like this happens to your refrigerator.

there you go again jimmy(manuel tomato)text and send, you try to make a misinformed statement and it still comes out wrong...stop Forrest stop!

Speaking as an Electronic Engineer (ret'd.)...
What language is this article in?

And no, despite what the Mrs. says, "ret'd" (↑) does not mean "retarded".

I've survived this long without having a refrigerator that can text me when I'm low on milk. I think I'll let the hackers work on someone else's fridge.

" The milk's going bad ! The milk's going bad ! "

Refridgerator: "You've got email. And weather."

And then it shoots ice cubes at you until you're disabled.

Skynet Terminator Fridge. We are in trouble.

Open the freezer, Hal.

I'm sorry, I can't do that.
