Internet of things security reminder: When a manufacturer stops issuing updates for any device that connects to the internet, in many cases the only way to secure the device is to disconnect it from the internet. If that cannot be done in a guaranteed manner, then the only way to secure such devices is to dispose of them. Case in point: Storage device manufacturer Western Digital warns that two of its network-attached storage devices – the WD My Book Live and WD My Book Live Duo – are vulnerable to being remotely wiped by attackers and now urges users to immediately disconnect them from the internet.
