Your Smartwatch Could Be A Major Security Risk

Smartwatch owners have been warned to be on their guard after a new survey found that many of the most popular wearable devices carry major security flaws.

A study by HP Security found that smartwatches, thanks to their increasing connectivity to the Internet of Things, are packed with potential ways for cybercriminals to access and hijack devices.

Overall, 100 percent of the ten devices tested by Fortify, HP Security’s application provider, were found to contain “significant vulnerabilities”.
