Light Commands: hacking voice assistants via laser beam

Researchers from the University of Michigan and the University of Electro-Communications in Tokyo, demonstrated that is possible to hack smart voice assistants like Siri, Alexa and Google using a lasers beam to send them inaudible commands. This new technique, dubbed Light Commands, exploits a design flaw in the smart assistants MEMS microphones. MEMS (microelectro-mechanical systems) […]
