Casino Hacked Via Fish Tank Thermostat

The Hacker News reports: [edited]

Nicole Eagan, the CEO of cybersecurity company Darktrace, told attendees at an event in London how cybercriminals hacked a casino through a internet-connected thermostat in an aquarium in the lobby.

The hackers exploited a vulnerability in the thermostat to get a foothold in the network. Once there, they managed to access the high-roller database of gamblers and then pulled it back across the network, via the thermostat, and up to the cloud."
