According to ZDNet contributor Stilgherrian, the security of the Internet of Things is likely to get worse before it gets better, thanks to smart features being added to items with increased real world safety implications.

With increasing automation and connectivity, especially under the stodgy stewardship of various levels of government, it is unlikely IoT devices will be able to remain secure in a fast-evolving threat environment.
