The Chinese owned Fox News reports...

hackers have figured out how to attack everyday items. Your printer, your cellphone -- even the blender in your kitchen -- can be hacked and used against you.

The blender in my kitchen?

This is typical Fox ratings chasing stuff.

This is not Science Fiction, but a real world problem. Some previous threads about these type of attacks:

I remember about 11 years ago when they started installing DSL in the apartment complex where I was living at the time. Lots of neighbors had wide open shares on their desktops. I found one guy who has his printer shared. So I printed a test page for him. I was so tempted to print out "Hello, Dave" on a sheet, but this was in South Korea and the reference probably would have been wasted. :)
