Of course, racing-dog owners were not pleased about this information going public. News about dead or maimed animals only adds to their industry’s unsavory image. Who doesn’t remember the case of the Baldwin County, Alabama, farmer who told authorities in 2002 that Florida greyhound trainers were paying him $10 a head to “dispose” of aging, slow or gimpy dogs? The old farmer admitted killing between 2,000 and 3,000 greyhounds over the years, shooting them in the head with a .22-caliber rifle, then tossing their remains into a trench.
So, for example, thinking about a child's doll, which we've already talked about in relation to the GPS sender, suppose that doll doesn't have very good security, and as Farsam has already talked about, there has been a couple of incidents both in Canada and Germany where toy manufacturers have been hacked in relation to smart toys. How do you explain to your child the consequences of poor security to the home, because it is, it is the consequence of poor security. You are inviting an object into your home that weakens the wi-fi security of the home. So it doesn't matter how many locks you put on the door, how tight the windows are closed, you are weakening the context of security in the home. But it's a weakening that is obscure to most of us, which in terms of the active actions of perpetrators of domestic and family violence and indeed criminal hackers, it means they don't have to put in a large amount of investment in terms of their hacking skills to make some significant damage.
