I don't know if this question belongs here or in the programming subforum, but I found it to be closest to here...
What I would like to know is if there has been some security audit into the library code used by projects for the ESP8266 modules?
I just read a pretty alarming article of IoT devices used by hackers to wreak havoc on the Internet.
And what is an ESP-xxx device if not an IoT gadget?
So can someone shed some insight into the safety of the libraries one use when a project is programmed?
Has the library code been cleaned or at least audited for back-doors?
Can we safely use the thing we create using the Arduino framework and WiFi devices like the ESP8266 based ones?
