The future isn't looking bright

Ransomware for computers, ransomware for phones...

What next? IoT ransomware?

Ransomware that can turn off your smart fridge and ruin your groceries?

Ransomware that can unlock your smart locks?

"Smart" devices don't seem so smart now, do they?

I'm not too excited for the future, especially since so many people are creating internet-enabled devices with next to no security or patches.
