Hacking smart devices with lasers

Here’s an interesting video from Destin (SmarterEveryDay)

It explains how the vulnerability of MEMS microphones allows attackers to remotely inject inaudible and invisible commands into voice assistants.
Some smart people over at the University of Michigan and University of Electro-Communications in Japan did a research on this topic.

You can read about it here if you can’t watch the video

I wonder and am curious to see what methods of prevention could be implemented by the manufacturers to prevent such an attack .


Didn’t they already mention this on the L1News?

Pretty sure it was posted to the news thread

I mean, it is really cool, but Destin is behind the times…

Unlike his SnatchBlock! vid. That was timeless

but they didn’t open a house in the news article


Apparently so am I.

I haven’t watched l1t news in quite some time (or read).

This popped up and it was new to me, so I shared.

It’s really cool.
I’ll have to bookmark the vid, to send to anyone I meet who gets one of these lock things.

It is pretty cool the iphone device needs an unlock code sometimes, but not all the time
