The deepfake transforms Indiana Jones, the secretary of the future and earholes

As scary as it is, the deepfake can also make you smile when it comes to cross  Magnum and  Indiana Jones, two heroes of the years 1980-1990. On the other hand, what is really frightening is the representation of the office worker of tomorrow. Lighter, this shell designed by Samsung with ears to improve the sound reproduction or these distributors of croquettes hacked remotely!

Our weekly meeting offers you an offbeat look at the news of new technologies. The bias is to entertain you, to surprise you and make you dream or sigh.

A security breach in croquette distributors

This is one of the major problems of new domestic technologies: the intrusion of a third party into the private space via connected objects. We know that the personal data they contain are used by manufacturers, that conversations can be heard via smart speakers, and even that your kibble distributor can be hacked remotely!  reports that a Russian security researcher has been able to access nearly 11,000 Xiaomi brand “FurryTail” distributors and could have modified the programmed feed schedules without the need for a word. password, or even make the device unavailable. The firm has been contacted and is committed to solving the problem.
