The potential dark side of the Internet of Things

Thanks to Rainer von Ammon who attracted my attention to an article entitled "Murder by Internet",  that points out some of the dangers of connecting everything to the Internet,  some of them such as manipulating pacemakers and controlling vehicles from remote may result in using the Internet for murder, and commit various crimes that will be difficult to detect.   Security of such systems will become crucial!  Event processing can also be used as enabling technology for such security, but cyber crimes pose challenges that law enforcement today is not ready to handle.
