Motherboard reports that a hacker has accessed more than 7,000 iTrack and 20,000 ProTrack GPS accounts globally. The hack involved the monitoring of people's movements, but the hacker, who referred to himself as L&M when he approached Motherboard, also claimed to be able to shut off some car engines or slow them down through the account access. L&M gained access by reverse engineering and using default passwords given to app users when they first sign up. The hack also revealed account information, such as usernames, real names, phone numbers, email addresses and physical addresses. “My target was the company, not the customers. Customers are at risk because of the company,” L&M said in an online chat. “They need to make money, and don't want to secure their customers.”
