Huge fine for default passwords on Smart Devices in UK

The government has introduced new legislation to protect smart devices in people’s homes from being hacked.
Recent research from consumer watchdog Which? suggested homes filled with smart devices could be exposed to more than 12,000 attacks in a single week.
Default passwords for internet-connected devices will be banned, and firms which do not comply will face fines up to £10m or 4% of their global turnover, as well as up to £20,000 a day for ongoing contraventions.
