Raspberry Pi devices can be hijacked via Windows IoT hack

Research outlines flaw that lets an attacker seize control of devices running Windows 10 IoT Core

Small Internet of Things (IoT) devices running a Windows IoT operating system (OS) are vulnerable to a flaw that could allow an attacker to seize full operational control.

Microsoft’s Windows 10 IoT Core OS is designed to run on smaller smart devices like the Raspberry Pi used by hobbyist computer programmers and tinkerers. But a flaw with its Sirep/WPCon communications protocol can allow a malicious actor to take over the device.
