Trend Micro's David Sancho on criminals' favorite IoT targets

Trend Micro Senior Researcher David Sancho talks with CyberScoop Editor-in-Chief Greg Otto about his 2020 RSA Conference presentation, which looked at where criminals are infecting Internet of Things targets.

“Everybody talks about the attacking smart toasters or Barbie dolls, but what we’re seeing is that the bad guys are focusing mostly on webcams,” Sancho told Otto at the conference. “You don’t see [criminals saying] ‘I’m attacking the Barbie doll… [criminals are] attacking this router because I can make money off of it. And this is exactly the business plan.”
