Be sure to make everything wifi-enabled, and be sure to screw up

There seems to be a widespread obsession nowadays to make everything "smart", which, in many cases unfortunately is nothing more than a bloated management buzzword for a wifi connection. Of course, as you would naturally expect, in 99.99999975% of all cases, the vendors screw it up, allowing random third parties to do virtually anything with the device by accessing one of their countless remote exploits. This funny case, brought to my attention by my dear friend Daniel, reports a remote hack of a wifi-enabled rifle to shoot targets at the will of the remote attacker.
