Recently a TSCMi member brought to our attention a YouTube article referring to a hacking vulnerability of Amazon’s Echo, the audio personal assistant, to provide the opportunity for malicious use as an eavesdropping device. In truth this should not be a surprise. On line Hacking communities have recently been full of such vulnerabilities, and these are not just limited to the Echo. There are a number of similar “smart speakers” and apps that provide personal assistant functions on laptops, smartphones and tablets.
And they’re all smarter than you might think.
