I've been working on this story for three months
Last Thursday, I published an investigative report I have been working on for about three months. Between Christmas and New Years, a security researcher by the name of Christopher Dreher contacted the heise online editorial offices with an unbelievable story: He had bought a GPS tracking smartwatch and had found horrendous security vulnerabilities. The devices are marketed for people to track their kids, spouses and grandparents – in itself that concept is horrible enough to me.
