Wonder what is in their firmware?
Even in the modest size of the core app of a camera, at under 10MB, there are maybe several hundred thousand lines of code.
A huge task for a human to analyse, and big even for automated analysis, for that small chunk that might do something unwanted.
Then move on to something like a Deep-In-Mind device with a couple of orders of magnitude more scale and sophistication - and it would be so easy to hide or obfuscate lots of things.

.. Wonder what is in their firmware?

Also note, it could be something simple that just allows a buffer overflow attack.

Heck how many developers / software engineers have overlooked buffer overflow issues? Countless.

Code examples even included buffer overflow vulnerabilities - and many developers just cut and pasted those examples.
