Casino Gets Hacked Through Its Internet-Connected Fish Tank Thermometer

Nicole Eagan, the CEO of cybersecurity company Darktrace, told attendees at an event in London on Thursday how cybercriminals hacked an unnamed casino through its Internet-connected thermometer in an aquarium in the lobby of the casino.
According to what Eagan claimed, 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, out the thermostat, and up to the cloud."
Although Eagan did not disclose the identity of the casino, the incident she was sharing could be of last year, when Darktrace published a report [PDF], referencing to a thermometer hack of this sort on an unnamed casino based in North America.

Why in the Hell does a fish tank thermometer need to be connected to the internet?

That's what I asked a repairman who was fixing my dishwasher. It seems that GE dishwashers are wifi capable.

Edit: I returned it to the store because even after it was repaired it didn't wash dishes.

Because you're charged for bandwidth whether you use it or not.
