John Smith is still being judged by the masses


Default How dangerous are hackers?

Is it true there is an elite group of ultra hackers that
can make my computer blow up by sending super secret
commands from across the internet?

You can block the secret signal by wrapping your network cables in tinfoil.

I have never wrapped anything in tinfoil, I don't believe Elvis is still alive,
I also don't believe the moon landings were fake, I also don't believe aliens
from outer space are currently present on earth, but I still do not believe the
official version of events about 9/11.

Try wrapping your own dick in tinfoil. Maybe you can use that as a condom.

No. There are no super secret commands which cause devices to explode etc. Devices which charge batteries and have internet access can be issued commands which might cause them to overheat, potentially starting a fire. However this requires issuing commands to the hardware directly and that the hardware not deviate from its standard api calls or have any protections in place. Beyond that most such hardware would have conditionals in place to protect against overheating, whether it be intentional or incidental.

If you can't even take your own question seriously then why bother asking it. I'm closing the thread now, as I consider it flame bait.
