how to hack your neighbors toy robot to spy on him
« on: October 08, 2009, 09:35:03 AM »
Researchers studied the RoboSapien V2, the Rovio, and the Spykee and find a ton of exploitable security flaws. Basically you can log into them through the net and video people . . .

summary here:

I haven't read the paper yet:

I have  :-X

Great paper. One could even argue that this paper gives too many usable details...

Multi-robots attacks could even lead to your home-keys being copied... smart and not impossible!

I wonder if Rovio's upgraded firmware patch the holes (all of them would be surprising).
Oh well, one thing to be done, to check it!  ;D

Thx for the link to that paper!

Yep! And Terminator too... "John?! Is that you?!"  :D

The paper also covered the need for standards and rules to let the consumer be aware of the physical possibilities of the robot and its potential security-holes... and the security risks - physical and psychological - that could result from it...

The disclaimer you need to sign prior to purchase your robot, will be the recursing sign of the "robot laws" to follow.  :-\

That will be the sole reason to survive and throw off the shackles of robo-oppresion.

Hi,

You were born and brought up in a school?  ;)

A rather fast and fairly heavy robot with quite large wheels needs what? A lot of power?
Please remember...
Engineering is based on numbers - not adjectives
