Hacking the Human Brain? Not As Impossible As You Think @digitalnapoleon

Hacking the Human Brain? Not As Impossible As You Think  @digitalnapoleon | Culture, Humour, the Brave, the Foolhardy and the Damned | Scoop.it

Researchers at the Usenix Security conference have demonstrated a zero-day vulnerability in your brain. They achieved as much as a 40% success rate among a group of willing volunteers. The “hack” works by measuring the brain’s response to images flashed before your eyes, from which the researchers can determine things like your home location, date of birth, and even your credit card PIN. The idea is basically that by showing someone their PIN number, the computer can tell that their brain recognises it as their own.
