Matthew Pizana onto Scientific Achievements/Technology Advancements
Clipped Aug 30
good luck finding anything among the classic tv sitcom knowledge and my thoughts about what dogs talk about when they play poker.
Dont you dare even think about your banking account password when you slap on those fancy new brainwave headsets. Or at least that seems to be the lesson of a new study which found that sensitive personal information, such as PIN numbers and credit card data, can be gleaned from the brainwave data of users wearing popular consumer-grade EEG headsets. A team of security researchers from Oxford, UC Berkeley, and the University of Geneva say that they were able to deduce digits of PIN numbers, birth months, areas of residence and other personal information by presenting 30 headset-wearing subjects with images of ATM machines, debit cards, maps, people, and random numbers in a series of experiments. The paper, titled On the Feasibility of Side-Channel Attacks with Brain Computer Interfaces, represents the first major attempt to uncover potential security risks in the use of the headsets.
hahah.. not to mention rated R stuff!
