First of all--

But hold you're horses, that's not what you should be scared of.


I am not a horse.

We all know that everything in today's "world" everything is connected inside integral and complex networks. And that's both a good and a bad thing! One, it means that information is much easier to get then before the internet... But on the other hand it also means that governments around the world will be avail to spy on their citizens.


Able

Psst. They already are, and they've been doing it for decades. At the very least, you could say the modern age of spying on your populace goes back to World War 2, at least for Western nations.



Infact, you should fear hackers more then anything else on this planet.


That would be a bit much.


Since first of all, they can compromise government systems around the world and use your information against you.

More likely: work for the government.


will be avail to do!


ABLE.


Barnaby Jack is one of the world most infoumes hackers out there,


Nah. That'd be Kevin Mitnick.



he was avail to jackpot a ATM... But that's just the beginning, he was also avail to hack heart implants, pacemakers and insulin pumps wirelessly, basiclly meaning that anyone who use them are caring a ticking bomb inside their body (metaphorically). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barnaby_Jack


ABLE

He's hardly the first to hack an ATM. This is why one should only use ATMs that are in a location with some security, well lit, indoors, etc.

The pacemaker and insulin pump exploits are virtually a non-issue for anyone but a VIP as there's no payoff. And a terrorist will go for something more effective.



A hacker can get you while you're in your car! There's almost nothing in a modern car that isn't connected in some sort of way to a computer... And guess what? You can hack that car and remove all traces of anyone ever being there. Guess what people will blame when you crash? Your poor driving when infact there might have been someone miles away controlling your car. You can watch a documentary from motherboard here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3jstaBeXgAs


Your imagination is running wild. Your average car doesn't have any remote connectivity options and very, very, very few have enough computer control do much more than kill the engine and operate the brakes--course, that's bad enough on its own.

My car has bluetooth only--good luck doing anything with that from miles away. :p

What most cars do have these days is a remote lock/unlock, but that's about all you can do with it. Smart keys and push-button start are creeping into the low/mid-range of cars, but it'll be a few years yet before everything but the most basic models has them.


so what do you thing about this?


I'm going to blow your mind here. Check this out: Read and then check out the date.

A car is a computer, it's just that it's one made for transportation. Even cars from the 20's.

Probably not, but it's still a computer. Kind of like trying to hack into an old Game Boy; it's old, but it's still a computer.

Oh, you are waaaay off.

A car it's not a computer, some of the new models have on-board computers and yes, they can be hacked, but old models that are only engines and wheels, they cannot be hacked and they are not any kind of computer.

But seeing you're still just a kid, i'll not go further in this discussion.

To be fair, a gameboy is indeed a computer. But, to say a car--even a modern one--is a computer, that's some loose definition right there.

Gee, I think I scared off a lot of people with my post above. I guess I made OP's head asplode.
