    Actually, we need to start teaching engineering as a high school subject.
    Engineering teaches the brain how to think different, like a hacker does.
    Also, benefits society as we need engineers.

    Pretty messed up.

    Quite often, these attacks are only possible under lab conditions. I have
    worked with many vendors that have shown in practice, the devices were not
    as exposed as they were in these researchers’ labs. BUT, the firmware
    should definitely be fixed anyway!

    Very interesting talk. Most enjoyable, informative, witty and humorous. I
    loved it and learned quite a bit about digital literacy and know I am NOT
    digitally literate.

    You could just wear a lead lined shirt to prevent implant hacks.

    I am fucking horrified. How in the hell has the consumer market not see
    this coming in the future of programming and technology. From this point
    on, I am going to make a effort to learn how to defend myself from
    technological threats, and to maybe learn some coding so possibly I can
    play some offence if need be. I recommend that everyone that reads this
    comment does the same, so everyone as a society can improve the future
    capitalist market.

    Very, very informative and good talk.

    As long as something has proper software but limited hardware like a
    digital watch that cannot connect to internet or have a spot to stick a gig
    stick in, is not gonna be a hack-able device off the bat! The person would
    still be required to crack it open and install the needed hardware!
    Unfortunately hardware needs software! Now for instance I have an MP3 that
    can store data and it’s USB like nothing preventing me putting slack ware
    to create a live OS to then read sensitive data on someones Windows
    computer or Linux or even Mac. if you don’t have the hardware and software
    to hack then that is technically Unhackable till someone Physically changes
    it! So your Keylock padlock is ok till a person installs software,
    controller, motor, and a source of electricity to the normally hunk of
    metal to convert it into a device , then it becomes a lil more hack-able
    but it still even then has one function for each thing and since it’s not
    wireless yet, you actually achievement nothing quite yet till it can send
    and receive wireless lols! I do admit that machines that can send strong
    Magnetic waves can probably program such things but not 100% sure :)
