A researcher claims that Fitbit has the potential to contribute to PC hacking

Researcher Axelle Apvrille demnostrated a potential cyber security threat using a Fitbit fitness tracker at the 2015 security conference. Acting as a potential cyber attacker, she placed harmful code on a Fitbit wristband within 10 seconds using Bluetooth technology. This harmful code would then be able to download onto the computer when the Fitbit is synced. Fibit Corporate accused Apvrille's findings to be false.
