Hacking a Kids Toy
There is a man named Samy who made some customization to a Mattel texting toy called an IMME. With just a few simple, the man turned that toy into a code-breaking tool. He then walked right up to a garage door of his neighbour, pulled the toy out of his jacket, and opened the door in fraction of seconds.
The customized toy tried every possible code combination it could for the door – a less impressive task than it seems, as many garage door codes are not particularly complex, making it very easy for these script kiddie hackers.
