Why would the 'internet' go down? - Tech Short (TS5)

Why would the 'internet' go down? - Tech Short (TS5)

'IT' happened again. Not because of this week's episode (at least I don't think so) but a big piece of the internet went unresponsive today because of systems with bad or default password configurations. Way more information than I can share in one episode but that is why we are here.

We are here to break down all the pieces that can cause such a mass orchestrated attack and help protect you from them as much as possible. 

Unfortunately, there isn't much you can do about what happened yesterday but you can prevent your home devices from taking part in the attacks.
