    Default Hacker Cracks Smart Gun Security To Shoot It Without Approval

    https://yro.slashdot.org/story/17/07...thout-approval

    Smart guns are supposed to be safer than traditional weapons. They're designed to only fire when paired with a second piece of technology that identifies the shooter, like an electronic chip or a fingerprint. Supporters say they could stop accidental shootings or misfires. And they've been lauded by law enforcement to prevent criminals from using stolen or misplaced guns. However, like any technology, they're not unhackable. A hacker known by the pseudonym Plore doesn't want to put a stop to smart guns, but he wants the firearm industry that's increasingly manufacturing these devices to know that they can be hacked. The model Plore hacked is called the Armatix IPI. It pairs electronically with a smart watch so that only the person wearing the watch can fire it. The devices authenticate users via radio signals, electronically talking to each other within a small range. Plore broke the security features in three different ways, including jamming radio signals in the weapon and watch so the gun couldn't be fired, and shooting the gun with no watch nearby by placing strong magnets next to the weapon.

    "We can tell xxx committed suicide because his gun is bio-metrically linked to this individual. There's no way anyone else could have fired this gun. It had to be suicide."
    Theye have refused their Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

    Theye have erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

    Theye kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies

    Theye have combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution,

    For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

    For cutting off our Trade with parts of the world:

    For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

    For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

    Theye plundered and destroyed the lives of our people.

    Theye are at this time transporting Armies of Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy of a civilized nation.

    Thou shalt not interact with the outside world directly. All interactions must include a digital path subject to monitoring by authorities. Analog is evil.
    The essential English leadership secret does not depend on particular intelligence. Rather, it depends on a remarkably stupid thick-headedness. The English follow the principle that when one lies, one should lie big, and stick to it. They keep up their lies, even at the risk of looking ridiculous.

    Exactly. They can basically just flip a switch and completely disable your ability to protect yourself from govt. And that is EXACTLY what the powers that be / status quo wants: a bunch of brainwashed thugs to make an example of any public dissent. Obey, or ELSE.

    Yep. It's a feature of this new gun technology. Law enforcement (and members of government) will always have the off switch, as will hackers and sophisticated criminals.

    When the Freedom to defend ones self against ones own government is outlawed, only Outlaws will have the Freedom necessary to defend themselves.

    (Replace "Freedom" with "Guns" or "Sexual Privilege" or "Bacon" or "Religion" or "Free Speech" or "Privacy" or anything else you can dream of, and be terrified of the things you can not dream of for someone else has already had a dream of something much much worse for you.)
