(Natural News) A popular electric scooter model manufactured in China can be remotely hacked and locked down. According to a “proof of concept” test by security research firm Zimperium, these electric scooters can be remotely accessed and controlled. Hackers can remotely accelerate the scooter or cause it to hit the brakes, putting the rider at risk of sudden injury or death. The electric scooter is called the Xiaomi M365 and it’s currently being used with dockless, ride sharing services in cities throughout the U.S.
Warnings from concerned experts about the dangers of wireless communication devices like cellphones and tablets have been rumbling in the distance for some time now. And these warnings are becoming increasingly insistent as more evidence emerges linking this type of technology to brain, heart and other cancers.
