Listening nightmare: GPS-Smartwatch for children and seniors gets eavesdropped on by strangers
An investigative search by c't und heise online proves: Hundreds of smart watches sold in Germany can be converted from the Internet into a bug in no time at all, without the wearer noticing.
GPS tracking smart watches sold in Germany via Amazon by a small Austrian-British company contain horrendous security gaps through which watch owners can be tracked and monitored. As research by c't and heise online proves, the Smartwatch Paladin from the manufacturer Vidimensio can be made to call any telephone number with a simple web request without the wearer noticing. The called party can then listen to everything that happens near the watch. The watches designed to make the wearers safer - Vidimensio promotes its products to protect children and the elderly - thus become bugs that can be controlled by strangers from the Internet.
The clock becomes a bug in no time
No login or password is required to activate the watch
