Irish B & Q stores earlier this week issued an urgent safety notice on shower heads not compatible with electric showersover a burns risk.

[article-rail-section title=”MOST READ IN MONEY” posts_category=”20″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /]

The Humberto Shower Head is not compatible with electric showers – and when installed to them, the flow restriction feature could cause scalding water to build up – meaning there’s a risk of burns.

TK Maxx and Homesense stores also issued an urgent recall on a popular lamp product over electric shock risk.

It’s estimated over 300 units of the Westlab branded Himalayan Pink Salt Lamp have been sold here.

3 Steps Consumers and Businesses can take to Decrease IT vulnerabilities via Infosec News Ireland

Two new vulnerabilities have been unocovered within connected devices that allow hackers access to the personal lives of consumers, according to McAfee researchers. A vulnerability within BoxLock smart padlock enables hackers to unlock the device within a few seconds, and a vulnerability within the Mr. Coffee brand coffee maker with Wemo grants hackers access to home networks.

“Cybercriminals are relentless, and as long as we continue to connect devices to the internet, they will continue to search for ways to exploit them,” said Raj Samani, McAfee fellow and chief scientist. “Vulnerability disclosures can be frightening for both the consumers using connected devices and the organizations that create them, however, the process is an essential component of creating a safer future. Cybersecurity researchers, businesses, and consumers working together to expose and eliminate these vulnerabilities keeps us all a step ahead of the bad guys.”

While there is no way to predict the future of IoT attacks, McAfee offers consumers and businesses tips to ensure devices and data are protected from such vulnerabilities.

3 steps for consumers to protect what matters

  • Set-up a secondary network for your IoT devices that doesn’t share access to your primary network and the devices and data connected thereto
  • Consider getting a router with built-in security features, making it easier to protect all the devices in your home from one access point
  • Set your device to auto-updates so you always have the latest software and be sure to change all default passwords once you purchase a new device

3 steps for businesses to secure customers

  • Invest in security early in the development of your products and assume that at some point you will run into a vulnerability that needs to be addressed right away. Be sure to constantly monitor products for potential vulnerabilities and access points for cybercriminals
  • Keep all your computers and devices protected by using robust security software that can help safeguard your private information and protect you from threats
  • When faced with a vulnerability, be proactive and transparent in addressing the issue, and engage with the security research team for the fastest path to remediation
