‘Smart’ rifle with computer technology fires at WRONG target after being HACKED

The TrackingPoint sniper rifle turns even the most amateur shooters into elite marksmen by using self-targeting technology to perfect the best shot.

But researchers have now discovered a potentially lethal flaw in the “smart” system by hacking into the weapon through its wireless internet connection.

They were then able to use a computer to trick the hacked rifle into switching its aim to an adjacent bullseye.
