A finger presents an impedance of approximately 100 pF in series with approximately 100Ω to ground, and this condition loads and modifies oscillations”

Bruce Schneier: The US government is coming for YOUR code, techies • The Register

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/02/14/the_government_is_coming_for_your_code/ ‘What we’re going to see is increased government involvement’ Schneier’s argument follows from accepting Marc Andreessen’s observation in 2011 that software is eating the world. “As everything turns into a computer, computer security becomes everything security,” said Schneier.

It shows again that it is a really good idea to keep IoT devices separated from your critical network. Building a completely separate network for IoT devices keeps making more and more sense every day.
