The concept of "unhackable" is bunk. Given enough time and possibly money, anything can be hacked. Reminds me of claims by various safe companies and all were proven wrong.
Bitfi finally and reluctantly retracted its unhackable claim last night in the face of a new cold boot attack. The John McAfee-backed hardware crypto-wallet firm got under the skins of security researchers by marketing its device as "unhackable" when it launched in July. The $120 Wi-Fi-enabled Bitfi wallet is a hardware …
"unhackable" is Bunk
And, to those who buy the bunk, I can sell you both the Brooklyn Bridge and acres of Florida swamp land at a very low cost--along with robot vacuums that will never look up your skirt or hang around your shower, baby cams that will never watch you breast feed, and smart assistants that will never listen to your bedroom talk.
Its associated with John Mcaffee, that should tell you all you need to know about its credentials.
My respect for John stems from the fact that he's so obviously hatstand and out there that nobody serious can take him seriously, yet, somehow, he still manages to find idiots who do.
Been following along with this on twitter, its been break time amusement for weeks.
SO, what can we take from this ?
basically, if you want FREE, TOTAL pen tested devices. with EVERY vuln listed, then claim it as hacker proof, and wait...............
not too long either :o)
and personally, getting DOOM to play on my new tech would be a nice addition, I would have packaged that bad boy up as a bonus feature LOL
Which is why ...
Which is why ... I have the regrettable habit of referring to a certain group of people as "marketurds". There is little to love, and not a thing to respect about people whose sole purpose is to manipulate others into handing over money via the sustained use and incontinent dissemination of spin, propaganda, flannel, exaggeration, misdirection and outright lies.
Marketurds belong firmly in the same zoo as politicians, salecreatures, recruitment agents and realtors, along with a horrifyingly large proportion of large companies' senior executives—parasitic organisms lacking the skill, wit and appetite for work that produces concrete things of value, instead wasting oxygen on endless gusts of hot air fuelled by ignorance, arrogance and vanity: and thriving off the real work done by others.
A pox on all of 'em.
