Hackers Hijack Hotel’s Smart Locks, Demand Ransom

“A resort hotel in Austria has been the target of a series of hacks, including one that crippled the electronic ‘smart locks’ on guest rooms. The attack prevented guests from accessing their rooms and prevented the issuance of new key cards, highlighting the potential fragility of systems in the so-called ‘internet of things.’ Lacking other options, the four-star Seehotel Jägerwirt paid the hackers a modest ransom in Bitcoin to reactivate their systems.”
