In our November issue of SIMformation, we look at the October Internet outage that has been tracked back to a malware infecting Internet-connected home devices, the "Internet of Things" (IoT). Lax security protocols and outdated software put IoT devices at risk. We look at what can be done as well as examine how the attack took place. Another important article discusses whether or not data encryption tools are at risk for cracking due to lazy programmers re-using the same algorithms and what IT pros feel may be the eventual solution to secure storage – Quantum computing. We also look at whether tape storage is finally on the way out with the move to Cloud-based data backups and storage, and why a NFL coach is down on use of tablets on the sideline.
