Casino Infiltrated through Internet-Connected Fish Tank Thermometer
Picture this: Jazzy music underscores George Clooney’s Danny Ocean pulling off another daring heist. He’s gathered his crew and it’s go time. Their entry point? A fish tank in the lobby.
Okay, maybe that’s not the best physical access point, but it is how hackers stole data from an unnamed North American casino.
According to Nicole Eagan, CEO of Darktrace, malicious actors manipulated a vulnerability in an internet-connected fish tank thermometer and stole data the casino had collected on their high-roller gamblers.
This is yet another stunning example of how the IoT can create unconventional breaches.
