Cyber attack from your Frig? WTF??

I found this article and wish to share it, basically, in a nut shell can it be possible for house hold appliances inniate a cyber attack?

I honestly doubt that could actually happen, unless someone exploited this new technology and modifies appliances to work as mini servers.

check out the article Connected TVs, fridge help launch global cyberattack says that smart appliances could potentially serve as more than just a grocery list helper, but possibly turning against you. I think this is a bunch of BS, there is no way that a smart appliance is able or capable to do a cyberattack unless it is human programmed to do so.
