Did you enjoy tonight's show?
I bet you're looking for more information about the Pwn Phone we created. I'm also going to tell you how you can build your own Mr. Robot phone or buy one if you're lazy.
We love Mr. Robot because not only does it make a very strong point to depict accurate hacks and use of technology, but it shows just how vulnerable our society and businesses are to hacking via connected device.
A vast majority of the hacks performed by fsociety are done via devices - femtocell, raspberry pi, & Bluetooth sniffers just to name a few - including the ultimate hack of E-Corp’s datacenter in season 1.
These are real threats that exist and are being exploited by criminals to gain unauthorized access and steal data from companies today.
Pwnie Express is all about protecting companies from device threats, so to see a popular, cutting edge show bring this to the forefront and actually be part of it, is quite exciting.
