Google Home Hub Security Hole

Highlighting the need for thinking through security as you automate your home, Tech Crunch has found a huge hole in the Google Home Hub.   Not only can it be queried for information and updated by rouge devices on your network, it can also be ‘bricked’ – (made completely unresponsive even after power cycles).   

This certainly isn’t unique to this device, it just highlights the need for more security as you automate your home, regardless of the company size/brand which is producing the device.
