Do You Want To Hack A Segway?
How would one go about hacking a Segway?
Apparently, it’s not very hard at all.
Cybersecurity firm IOActive was able to hack a Segway Minipro through the device’s phone app.
The app connects to the high-end hoverboard via bluetooth, which leaves its firmware vulnerable to overrides.
This allows hackers to take control and remotely drive it away. Or even stop a rider mid-motion.
IOActive says Segway needs to improve its security and encrypt the firmware.
Oh, for the simple days of riding a bike…
