The hackable technology that worries even a legendary con man | Frank W. Abagnale


All the things that worry me are autonomous
cars, things to hack vehicles, pacemakers, your laptop at home where you didn’t cover
the camera and someone is watching everything you’re doing in your house or listening to
everything you’re doing in your house. All those things give me great concern. Right now cybercrime is basically a financial
crime. Its a business of stealing money or stealing
data. Data is money. However, I think its going to turn a lot blacker
than that. We have the ability right now as I speak to
you to shut someones pacemaker off but were limited by distance. We have to be within 35 feet of the victim. I could walk by you on the sidewalk, turn
off your pacemaker, speed it up or any bodily device you have on you controlled by a chip
or a computer program. We have that ability right now but again limited
by distance. We have the ability now for law enforcement
to pull over a vehicle on the interstate if they can get within 35 feet of the vehicle
because we know that the typical car has about 240 computer components in it. We can lock the car doors, lock the power
windows, turn on the airbag, shut off the motor and take the car and pull it over. We can do that now but were limited to distance
of 35 feet. So the question is five years from now will
that be 35 miles, 350 miles, 3,500 miles away? Im afraid as the future comes and especially
when you talk about cars that drive themselves. The ability to kidnap the person in the car
and lock them in the car. The ability to just take over the car and
crash the car. Those are the things that havent been answered
that no one has figured out yet how they would stop that from happening. And those are the things that concern me. We develop a lot of technology but we never
go to the final step and that is the last question of the development in how would someone
misuse this technology and lets make sure it cant be done. In your house you have a device you talk to
and you say, “Hey, what time of day is it? Whats on TV tonight? Order me this from Amazon.” Its a voice activated device easily hacked
and manipulated to reverse to hear everything you say in your house. If you have cameras in your house maybe because
of dog watching, babysitting, a hacker can easily reverse the camera so they can see
everything that goes on in your house and watch it. The same with your outside cameras. We develop those technologies, we want to
make them inexpensive, number one, so they’re not encrypted. They don’t have a lot of technology in them. And two, where its return on investment. We want our money back right away. And marketing is saying, “Hey, this is great! Weve got to get this out right away!” Without asking that question what if someone
were to do this with it and how could we stop that now before we ever put it in the marketplace. Very little companies do that. Most of the technology out there can be hacked,
can be manipulated because we dont do those things.

    Privacy is not the problem ignorance is the problem. Get rid of ignorance and the money based system and pushed for a moneyless society based on mass access and automation. Basically a capitalist society with this kind of Technology can only be a dystopia. We need to move to a automation luxury communism direct democracy society

    Some folks are of the opinion that 5G towers everywhere will eliminate the distance/proximity issues. I don't know if that's true or not. If so it does seem creepy.

    You can't just hack a camera in someone's house. You'd have to hack the network it's on first and that is very encrypted.

    I bought a door entrance camera and when I had the app shut down it would click on at night, couple times I wasn't dressed properly, like wth it's not even on. Creepy I dont use it anymore kept turning itself on when I had it turned off mainly in the evening.

    Why 35 feet? Is that bluetooth or Wi-Fi? Those are rooky numbers. With directional antenna, you can go a heck of a lot further than that! Maybe a mile or so.

    Here's some nightmare fuel! Now apply this threat to Neural-lace technology.

    For the uninformed, it's a very thin mesh of electrodes implanted within your skull that not only can monitor but significantly alter your brain activity. It's genius is that it can wirelessly send/receive packets of information to/from a remote server.

    This tech has encouraging potential for repairing a litany of neurodegenerative diseases and brain injuries, however its brain enhancement possibilities will change everything. Imagine 100X visual acuity, recall, memory, processing – stratospheric IQs

    🤨 "Yah but I'll never let that tech touch my body!"… Said the man alive because of a pace maker device, restored hearing because of a cochlear implant, 20/20 vision because of contact lenses plastered to his eyeballs, unrestricted communication to family & society regardless of distance because of a rectangular cellular device that never leaves his pocket, a device that will soon be obsolete because its functions will be incorporated into the brain through this same Nueral-lace tech.

    Relax, don't worry fellow meat puppets, corporate-controlled hive mind isn't coming, it's already here. 😉

    Do we really need all these computers inside our cars? =/

    Actually, coming up with possible scenarios of how to 'hack' or generally misuse a (new) device or technology is one of the first steps directly after nailing down the idea. I don't know from which century this guys experience in the industry stems from. He IS very right, though … wether this part of the engineering actually flows back into development of the project depends on tadaa 'market value' and legislation…

    I know that there is a fucking GPS TRACKER on my car. I am just too lazy to look for it…

    WIFI Motion activates cameras are the dumbest idea ever!!! Not only can law enforcement hack those cameras and use your own security cameras to monitor you, they can also flood your network in a DoS attack to render your WIFI security cameras useless while they break into your house.

    It took me a while to figure this out. Get super petite motion activated cameras that will record onto a SD card instead and hide them from plain site. This is also dual use technology that you can use to make porn in your own bedroom. I have lots of recordings now to blackmail your police and FBI agents in the future when I release a complete package to the public on what you people do and how your domestic anti-terrorism program works – to my detriment for the last 12 years.

    The law enforcement have driven me almost insane in the last 6 years. I will never forget any of this. And I also do not forgive. You people are FUCKED! Don’t ever install IoT devices in your own home! Don’t turn on any Bluetooth devices in your own home! If your computer has Bluetooth, disable it!
