First of all, IoT furbies are terrifying enough on their own. A Furby connect with IoT capabilities? Count me out! This toy comes with some serious security concerns. "External security researchers also thought it would be possible for someone to re-engineer its firmware to turn the toy into a listening device due to a vulnerability they found in the toy’s design (which it’s not publicly disclosing)." Along with these concerns with the Furby Connect and other similar toys comes a push to ban their sale for safety reasons in the UK. Parents are being warned about these security concerns. This just shows that IoT security is a very real and important concern in certain markets. Always check the security of your products!
