The Segway Ninebot app has been hacked. Security seems to have been non-existent. I wonder if Gotway, Kingsong and the others are just as vulnerable? I would hate to be speeding along on my EUC at close to 40 km/h and then have a hacker turn it of at full speed...

They are as vulnerable - there is no security concept. The good thing is that gw, ks and the others cannot be remote controlled as a minipro. 

Don't know if an attacker could start a firmware update or calibration while one is riding - should be prevented by the firmware, but imho noone tried this by now... (as also the power button is disabled while riding...)
