BankInfoSecurity reports that iStaySafe will stop manufacturing and servicing its TicTocTrack smartwatches that let parents monitor their children. The shutdown comes after tech researchers found the watch's technology could be hacked. Breaches could involve tracking or spoofing a child's location, allowing hackers to add themselves as a "parent" in order to view private information connected with the account. Pen Test Partners, a U.K. penetration testing and consulting company, reported details of the security flaws in a blog post. "To this day, there never has been a security breach that has lead to our customers' personal data being used for malicious purposes," iStaySafe Founder Karen Cantwell said.
