Associated Press: "Heartbleed could harm a variety of systems"
. . . Darren Hayes, professor of security and computer forensics at Pace University, says the bug could potentially affect any home device that’s connected to the Internet, including something as simple as a Wi-Fi-enabled Blu-ray player.
He also points to recent advances in home automation, such as smart thermostats, security and lighting systems.
“We simply don’t know the extent of this and it could affect those kinds of devices in the home,” he says.
