IoT goes nuclear: creating a ZigBee chain reaction | the morning paper

The popular Philips Hue smart lamps use ZigBee for example. Suppose you could build a worm that jumps directly from one lamp to another using their ZigBee wireless connectivity and their physical proximity. If the install base of lamps in a city is sufficiently dense, you could take them all over in no time, with the worm spreading like a physical virus. The authors of today’s paper demonstrate exactly how to build such a worm.
