As promised in the 35C3 lecture „Smart Home – Smart Hack: How the way into the digital home becomes a walk in the park“, VTRUST publishes in the name of Michael Steigerwald the lecture slides in PDF format, the scripts used there as well as instructions for the secure use of different affected devices.

In cooperation with C’t editors, the scripts used in the presentation were prepared and optimized so that hobbyists can use them to flash various affected devices with an open source firmware. This means that these devices can then be operated without communicating with the manufacturer cloud. A detailed manual and description for the firmware transfer has been published in both German and English as part of a practical article. The scripts themselves are available in the C’t GitHub repository .
