Unfortunately this is all too likely if things keep going the way they are.

If the thinking about keeping parts of access to any device isolated from a connection doesn’t change and the malware people are not deterred by the likelihood of arrest and imprisonment, then the Internet Of Things will end up like this.  Including people getting locked out by their own security systems.

The week in ransomware.  Always another flavor.
