Hackers Could Program Sex Robots to Execute

A cybersecurity scientist has issued a weird warning saying sex robots could grow and kill their owners if hackers can access into their heads. Tech billionaire Elon Musk claimed last month that fake intelligence could control the planet and Elon Musk is not the only one worried about the dangers of killer tech.

In view of growing popularity and sophistication of sex robots, Dr. Nick Patterson, cybersecurity lecturer, disclosed that the lifelike dolls could end up going all "Terminator" on us.

Then the threat is not the one embedded in fake intelligence but a more well-known and human form of mischievousness. A sex robot which has been hacked is the same threat to that of a hacked phone or computer, barring its size, design and strength which mean that it could harm a person outside the territory of the electronic area.

Since this is not about fake intelligence running uncontrollably, therefore, is this actually something to worry about ? Seemingly so, as they claim that it would be easier than hacking a computer or phone and sex robots use the same type of operating system like they.

If a robot is linked to the internet which means it can be hacked. And if it can be hacked then someone can hack you by using this robot. Nerdist.com posted on September 11th, 2017, stating that it is correct, love hurts but sex with a robot could kill you.

Currently, the technology behind sex cyborgs is quite primitive but no one can say what the future could hold. If we reach a stage where such robots can move like life - and their "brains" can be changed through software updates - it is surely not out of the reach of possibility that "death by sex robot" ends up on tombstone of some unlucky soul.

Patterson explains it as that of a hacked self-driven car which could kill those who are using it. The ever-increasing internet usage means everyone becomes vulnerable to new security risks with each new tool they link to the web. Once hacked, they could absolutely be used to do physical actions to your advantage scenario or to cause harm.
