aholcom2at October 11,2015 The story about the ability of using a drone to hack mobile phones was pretty interesting. I had hope the video would have at least explained how the person was able to do that and what phones were affected. If I had to guess it could possible be one of those StringRay type of devices. Its also neat to see that Cyber Crime is soon going to be the number 1 focus for law enforcement in the future.
bmanahan188at October 21,2015 It is scary to see the opportunities that new technology provides hackers with. As devices become more and more infused into our daily life’s we must start taking security more seriously, even though it doesn’t directly generate profit for a company. I feel that it is likely that legislation is passed regarding drones as some type of regulation around them is needed. Otherwise they can be used for activities like the one shown in this video.
brober15at October 22,2015 I hope this means that companies will move away from using SSNs to verify identity. It was never meant to be used as such, and is too easily stolen. I predict that the first company to easily and reliably use biometrics for online identification and verification is going to drown in money. Of course that will just become another thing to hack/steal, but maybe it will be harder to monetize than existing PII.
hanna88at November 02,2015 I don't think I've ever seen a dude playing with a drone like that but apparently they are growing in popularity. The wearable devices are no different than the other tech we live on all day so it doesn't surprise me that people are trying to exploit that. What's with the contact? I wish they would've explained what was on that thing. Looked like something out of a 007 movie.
klloyd6at November 04,2015 Was that a contact lenses that had smart capabilities? Learning about these advancements are more alarming than anything else at this point. I think drones should definitely be something that remains illegal. But who is to stop developers from creating things smaller and less identifiable?
