"The issue is not the victims fault IoT security is so bad, it's the suppliers fault. End of."
"End of" what? You couldn't be more wrong! Plus my phrase uses incorrect English, thanks to the bree-exit of your lesser educated Britonions. The problem is your mum, or you, thinking that you need an Internet connected security device, or any IoT device. What the fuck did you do BEFORE IoT? These are extra conveniences that are OPTIONAL. You don't need the camera on the open Internet 24/7. NO ONE DOES! Putting a shitty little device out there, and one you have no clue to its' operation, is not a thing. Period.
The other problem is that you, or some other, knowledgable person should setup the camera so it is not on the open Internet, or for extra credit; use the FUCKING INTERNAL SD SLOT TO RECORD THE FUCKING SECURITY/CAT VIDEOS YOU SO DESPERATELY CRAVE!!1! GOD DAMN! Get a fucking clue for once in your life, or just move out of the city and into a dumpster in the countryside and forego any Internet or other services you don't really need or understand. I have an old mum too, so doesn't setup any fucking cameras or other stupid shit. She bakes some, and does grandma shit. She doesn't setup IoT bullshit devices for no good reason. Take note, idIoTs; all the IoT in the world is not going to make anyone or anything "smarter." The "smarts" come when you setup the device, like most normal people would, in the correct manner; inside a firewalled, personal network.
I have a stupid security camera too. You know how it's connected? IT'S NOT! You fucking, dolts! It merely gets timeserver updates from behind two firewalled routers and records only to the SD slot, and never to the broken services of the manufacturer. THAT is the "End of." Now go back to downloading Windows 10, dummies. I'll be back to educate any Remainers who would remain.
