Can Google Glass Be Hacked Over the Air?

May 2, 2013 by Lisa Oshima | Google Glass, Mobile

After reading this article yesterday, I wondered if Google Glass  was really that easy to hack.  So, earlier today, I stopped by the San Francisco office of one of my advisory clients, stealth-mode mobile security start-up, Bluebox Security to ask for an expert opinion on Glass security…

I posted a video here on Google+ (unfortunately still can’t share video from Google Glass outside of Google+) of my conversation with Android security pro and fellow Glass Explorer, Andrew Blaich.  He assured me that while any device can be hacked if someone has physical access to it, at least at this point, there is no way for someone to remotely hack Glass over the air.

Andrew also talked about some of the cool things he’s discovered while researching Glass around winking gestures and voice control, calling Glass a “very promising platform for developers”. He hopes to have a blog about it up on the Bluebox Blog in the next day or so.

Check out the video here.
