Siri has learned to hack at a distance
An international team of researchers has identified a serious vulnerability in the voice assistants from Apple and Google. The loophole for the attackers headphones can be attached to modern the phone.

The results of the studies show that progressive phones can be hacked using a radio signal sent to earphones owners. This is the conclusion of scientists analyzing the work of the voice assistants from Google (Google Now) and Apple (Siri). These firms are the main developers of operating systems for most modern gadgets.

It is established that the attackers only need to send appropriately encoded RF signal to the device that they were able to silently give commands to the smartphone at a distance of 5 meters. As receiver under this option will be a wired headset attached to a telephone or tablet. Therefore the villains can take complete control of system devices: to send news, to dial numbers and make calls.

Days.Roo was informed about the discovery of a severe vulnerability in the new operating system iOS 9. Critical mistake allowed you to bypass the lock and gain access to personal data of the owner of the iPhone. The procedure consisted of 15 steps that led to the launch of Siri. The only method of protection at the time of writing was considered to be disabling Siri from the lock screen. To achieve the desired result, you need to go to "Settings", select "Touch ID & passcode". Probably Apple will solve this dilemma with the release of iOS updates in 9.1 that is already tested by developers and users in beta version.
