How to Hacking Traffic Lights is Amazingly Really Easy


Hacking Internet of Things (IoTs) have become an amazing practice for cyber criminals out there, but messing with Traffic lights would be something more crazy for them.
The hacking scenes in hollywood movies has just been a source of entertainment for the technology industry, like we’ve seen traffic lights hacked in Die Hard and The Italian Job, but these movies always inspire hackers to perform similar hacking attacks in day-to-day life.
Security researchers at the University of Michigan have not only hacked traffic light signals in real life, but also claimed that it’s actually shockingly easy to perform by anyone with a laptop and the right kind of radio. If we compare the traffic light hacks in movies and real life, the reality is much easier.
