"A fridge has been discovered sending out spam [as] one of more than 100,000 
devices used to take part in the spam campaign."

(OK, yes, it's funny enough as a Friday posting, but the lack of security in most 
devices in the "Internet of things" is beginning to be a major concern.)

(Someone asked, the other day, if, when the Internet of things is complete, it will 
be called the Thingternet ...)
