COMMENTS


This talk shows that many computerized devices have inadequate security against third parties. That's the lesser side of the problem. If the software is not free/libre, they have ZERO security against the program's developer. Over the years, developers increasingly lose their scruples against designing software o mistreat the user.

This is one of the reasons we should reject software that isn't free/libre.

See http://gnu.org/philosophy/free-software-even-more-important.html.
