Source code unleashed for junk-blasting Internet of Things botnet

TeeCee Gold badge

Many suppliers do this. Amazing how many people then put them in places so said sticker[1] can be easily read through the nearest window....(!)

You may be able to secure a device, but you cannot prevent its owner then proceeding to royally fuck it up.

Best of breed here is probably Bloody Terrible, who at least put the sticker on a pull out bit that cannot be read in situ. Next best is to put it on the bottom of the device.

[1] Usually sporting the SSID, WiFi password and admin details to make life really simple for any passing s'kiddie. See also eggs and baskets.
