A hacker from LimitedResults was able to find the unique vulnerability of a smart light bulb, with which you can reveal all the necessary information to connect to Wi-Fi. Hacker received all the necessary data in less than one hour.
Media reports that you can control smart light bulbs through an application on your smartphone. But it can also be hacked directly.
It is reported that the hacker in order to circumvent the protection, used a hand saw, with which he took out the smart bulb chip. Then he connected the chip to another device using a USB port. If you do not configure the security system, the data on the light bulb chip remains open.
This light bulb costs about 25 dollars. The developers stated that they knew about a certain vulnerability of the light bulb and have already eliminated this problem.
In the past, a Belgian scientist Mati Vanhof from the University of Leuven found a vulnerability in the WPA2 security protocol, which is used to protect personal and general corporate wireless networks.
