“Don’t forget that if your brush can talk with your PC, I can talk with your brush and this with your PC” (Steve Purser)

Words of author: Steve Purser chief of operations for the European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA), in a statement made to EFE Agency in The Hague, released on November 2, 2018: “Don’t forget that if your brush can talk with your PC, I can talk with your brush and this with your PC”.

In those statements, the chief of operations for ENISA called for “electronic common sense” to protect against computer hacking.

“Fundamentally,” he said, “we have to change our way of dealing with all devices connected to the Internet if we want to protect our privacy.”

This expert even talks about the devices “that can tell third parties something as private as when you are having sex”.

“I think we do what we can to protect the user, but the process (of adapting and updating the level of security of the system) will become an important point and the behavior of people will be even more,” he explained.

That is why he warns and asks that the message be conveyed that “we are moving in a new world and this requires” new “management” techniques, including being aware of the dangers involved.

“Imagine that you are an important politician, that you spend the night partying in the city, you wake up at 2 in the afternoon, and you brush your teeth with your electric toothbrush connected to your mobile. There will be those who stay with this information and end up investigating your whole life”, he gave as an example and added:

“Don’t forget that if your brush can talk with your PC, I can talk with your brush and this with your PC. And that is a very interesting scenario for a hacker and a very serious situation for the security of the user”.
