11 Year-old Turned A Toy Into A Weapon To Teach A Lesson On Cyber Security

Published on 17 May, 2017 at 9:52 pm By

Gone are the days when kids used to eat dirt and watch cartoons all day long. With the advent of technology in the close quarters of our daily life, we are not surprised to find kids operating gadgets better than grownups. So, when one of these kids turns out to be a genius, know that some mind-boggling things are going to happen.

11-year-old Reuben Paul, known as “Cyber Ninja”, is challenging man-made technological marvels from the past. This boy of Indian origin lives in Austin, Texas. He is a cyber security expert and the CEO of a game development firm.

During a cyber security conference in the Netherlands, he sent a shock wave among the audience by hacking their Bluetooth gear to operate a teddy bear. The point of this stunt was to show the dilapidated state of our cyber security.



To demonstrate his point, he used a toy that was connected with the internet Wi-Fi for instructions. The 6th grader then plugged a Raspberry Pi (a pocket-sized computer board) into his laptop and started scanning the hall for available Bluetooth devices and successfully connected with many Bluetooth devices in the conference.

In the wake of the recent cyber attack, Reuben’s demonstration makes a point. As it is his dream to become a “good cyber spy”, there is a flicker of hope that technology and humans may co-exist in harmony.
