From Blue Tooth to automobile remotes, PCs, and "secure" credit cards, Hacker extraordinaire Pablos Holman shows how nearly every secure system is vulnerable..
This was nearly three years ago. Look at all the stuff hackers have been able come up with since. Things like those involving major corporate and government server security breaches for example.

Whether this is a good thing or a bad thing I suppose depends if you're the snooper or the one being snooped.
Then again who's to say the snooper isn't being snooped on at the same time too :-)
