What I'd like to see is some Turing-like proof that ANYTHING "smart" CAN and WILL be hacked to cause physical harm, then present the proof to mainstream news as a means to convince legislators to regulate such products to save lives.

Including electrical or gas board smart meters. The challenge to attackers, whether state-sponsored or mischievous kiddies, is substantial. But the scale of damage possible is staggering. </rant>
