Exactly true. Many engineers will take a defensive attitude when these types of security flaws are found, but others will take them as an opportunity to improve the product. I have never met an engineer that wanted to produce a flawed product, but it happens. While it is embarassing to be exposed on a stage such as this it is much worse to have it come out in court in a major lawsuit. Just ask Toyota...

That is the way the role of critics has been in every field.  A person who can find the faults with the food being tasted, may not be an expert cook. The person who can appreciate the fine naunces of a music may not be himself/herself a good musician.


So the developer, the tester, the consumer all roles are different and that is why to get a perfect product we need to work at all levels.

Nothing can be perfected single handedly.


So the creators should appreciate that somebody is taking pains to enable them to improve upon the lacune in their design

Black Hat and solution to problems
_hm   7/27/2014 1:42:31 PM
It is nice they can find weak points and break systems. Can they provide alternate solution to problem they see imminent?

Many times it is much easier to find fault in system as compare to create solution to problem.

Home Automation
Anand.Yaligar   7/27/2014 3:59:43 AM
This article is really nice, it shows both the ills of home automation as well as sectors where home automations may be used. Home automation has a bright future in Hotel Management and people need to be educated about using a home automation in a hotel room. Also the hotel itself can exercise security remotely. I?ve seen cases of deaths in a hotel room, the body only to be discovered after many days. These types of calamities can be prevented when the hotel lobby can tell whether a person has collapsed of not, by using sensor data (as cameras are illegal inside a hotel room).
