Attention all 8-year olds! Your friend Cayla is a snitch!
According to BBC News, Germany’s telecommunications regulator, Federal Network Agency (Bundesnetzagentur), has finally sounded the alarm. The multi national talking doll that hails from Dutscheland was revealed two years ago to be vulnerable. Back in the UK, the Retailers Association isn’t worried even though researchers have been able to talk to children from up to 33 feet away. They’ve even been able to accomplish this THROUGH WALLS!
Speaking of walls, Germans on both sides are, again according to the BBC, very suspicious and intolerant of surveillance. Penalties for possessing banned surveillance devices can result in up to two years in the big house.
Parents have been advised to destroy Cayla. She poses and a friend but may be your enemy.
