'Internet of Things' allows new terrorism threats, experts say

LAS VEGAS -- Increased Internet connectivity among cars, appliances, major infrastructure and everyday devices has opened the door to new threats of digital terrorism, say experts at the international digital security conference Black Hat.

     The conference opened here with a bang Wednesday. Famed U.S. computer hacker Colby Moore demonstrated a technology that can falsify and jam satellite data from aboard an airplane. The device, Moore said, can be built quickly and easily from readily available parts for a mere $1,000.
