A 14 yr old Polish teenager managed to hack into a public train system’s controls with a modified TV remote control.

“He treated it like any other schoolboy might a giant train set, but it was lucky nobody was killed. Four trams were derailed, and others had to make emergency stops that left passengers hurt. He clearly did not think about the consequences of his actions.” – The Register

What’s next? an 8 yr old operating stop lights with a cellphone?
