Embarrassed Dude Discovers the One Flaw With Having a Dirty Recovery Password

When you think about it, the password worked perfectly. He was able to remember it in an instant. Having to say it out loud in order to get your credit card unblocked is a different story. It's not too bad considering people do embarrassing things all the time.

You know how everything connects to the Internet these days? Well, it looks like the refrigerators from Samsung aren't very smart about it.

A group of hackers discovered that they can easily scrape the fridge's information for Gmail passwords, thus giving you yet another reason to not trust your refrigerator, or techonology, or anything really.



As Daily Dot reports:

Security researchers at the firm Pen Test Partners found a flaw in Samsung's smart fridges that lets anyone with the right technical know-how intercept the Gmail username and password of the fridge's owner.

Ken Munro, one of the researchers, told the Register that the hack—known as a "man-in-the-middle" attack because of the way it intercepts the data—takes advantage of the fridge's Google Calendar feature.

"It appears to work the same way that any device running a Gmail calendar does," Munro said. "A logged-in user/owner of the calendar makes updates and those changes are then seen on any device that a user can view the calendar on."





As with all these new fangled things onto which we are just throwing all our über-personal information, we should really take care.

Don't tell your fridge your secrets or who knows what could happen.
