A decade has passed since the introduction of network enabled home appliances into the market. Every year these appliances advance in functionality and inter device integrations, such as the integration with cell phones/smart phones , service servers/ cloud services and more. This has lead to a significant increase in the information and value that the network enabled house hold appliances handle. Under such circumstances a vulnerability in the house hold appliance could be leveraged to gain access to other devices and information. In this presentation I will present whether such risks can be actualised and the changes of functionality and vulnerabilities in network enabled house hold appliances,looking at those changes from a user's and developer'sperspective.
