Bosch Smart Thermostat Feels the Heat From Firmware Bug

Bosch, a popular producer of smart home technologies, is currently under fire following the discovery of a severe firmware bug in its Smart Thermostat. The existence of this vulnerability exposes the users’ networks within the hospitality industry to potential attackers who, on gaining access, could take control of the entire device. This could result in the attacker ‘bricking’ or disabling the device indefinitely, thereby rendering the HVAC system useless. The company is urgently working to rectify this critical issue to ensure their customers’ safety and the seamless operation of their smart devices.
