    Wow. That is definitely impressive, if a little scary. The more we automate, the more dangers like this pops up.

    Meh. Overblown; Tracking Point rifles are pretty damn rare and not for the general public. Kind of like saying the newest Tesla prototype has a hacking issue. Also, barring a rotating turret, there's only a certain cone of fire coming from the rifle's barrel that it could aim at. It's not like it'll rotate ninety degrees out of phase and hit something to your side. Physics don't work like that.

    It's a tech issue that will be addressed.

    Edit: Further thoughts; putting computer tech in firearms, other than for specific reasons (like the Tracking Point) is generally a bad idea. Introducing electronic points of failure into a device that has to have absolute reliability in a life or death situation is intolerable. I suspect that the vast majority of people aren't interested in owning a weapon like this, simply because of the complications it adds.

    Too me it sounds like they hacked in because they turned the wifi on, which isn't on by default and didn't create a password other than the default. I'd like to see them do it when one is set up properly.
