I remember when they released their data to the world on this. Can't remember what they called it... Very cool though! It sent some waves through the security community. Ultimately falling on deaf ears at the hardware manufacturing end though.

IIRC they were really surprised with the devices they were communicating with. Thermostats, Alarm Systems, TVs, as well as standard routers and computers. They even encountered a rival "trojan" setting up a malicious botnet. I think they programmed their "trojan" to remove the malicious one on all affected systems. Pretty interesting.


Worthy of note is that the time of their "study" there hadn'ty been any recorded instances of a malicious "hack" of a network, or unauthorized access of a network, through a non-computer based source (i.e. laptop, router, email app, etc). But just recently, in the last month or so, it has been proven that most home wireless networks can be completely controlled, recorded, and redirected just by accessing a wireless enabled refrigerator. It's a crazy time we're coming into. Programmers are so far ahead of the hardware manufacturers right now it's not even funny.

I got 200 this time.. which means the answer to the "letters at the end" question is "H".

I don't get it.

lmao, that's is one I was saying "tha fvck!" to. There was one with two rows of numbers that I didn't have any patience for too.

Left-right symmetry on the top row, bottom-top symmetry on the bottom row. H fits both. None of the others do.
