Barbie Doll Talks With Child And Parents But Hackers Listening it
And that time children were screaming like never before, Basically if you wanted to know that what’s actually this doll does will put you at only one question – and that is the toy interrogating with child and asking all the valuable information about the family. After connecting the doll with the family WiFi through the smartphone application.
After successful connection with the internet and mobile application, the toy also starts chatting with the girl, at first to impress the girl, toy makes her laugh sharing jokes and start questing some maths to her and says her favorite colour is pink and next on some after stage the toy ask her lots of questions relating her likes and dislikes, hope, dreams, family member and relatives & friends.
So here is your question, do you really think a doll asking such question to your child without any reason, why Internet connectivity is needed to run the toy, the toy must be internally programmed so that it can store the information and sends directly to the surveillance or the hacker. The connection between Toy makers and the hackers are really not genuine, but yes hackers will also not pay to the toy company for the valuable information of the family so where is the direct connection remain available and that is the Doll who connects herself from the internet and that makes HACKING.
None of the family member neither the toy company will know that the toy is under surveillance by hackers who breach into the cloud server of the doll where she stores all the valuable family information the girls spoke to the toy. and when the girl turns 18 she might apply for credit cards but who else know her personal information and that is the hacker. Hackers can also hijack your daughters doll microphone to control what else the doll can ask the girl which will be under the control of the hacker.
There is no doubt that no company like Mattel Inc will make their own company at risk by launching such vulnerability product to market, strong suggestion to makers and the technician team making the product database more safeguard, the connection of internet might be necessary but allowing hackers to breach into the system using microphone and all will really make the unknown family at security risk.
