Future cyber attacks could attack medical implants – or wage “psychological war” in virtual reality, Europol warns

“New hi-tech cyber attacks could threaten energy supplies, ‘wearable’ computers – and even medical implants, according to a study conducted by Europol’s European Cybercrime Centre (EC3) and the International Cyber Security Protection Alliance (ICSPA).

Attacks in ‘virtual reality’ or ‘augmented reality’ could even be tailored to cause ‘psychological harm to individuals’.

The white paper, which examines emerging threat scenarios for the year 2020, also envisages bio-hacks which could allow criminals to defeat biometric authentication systems such as fingerprint authentication.”
