Lasers can be used to hack Alexa, Siri and Google Assistant

A group of researchers have come with a hack which uses lasers to hack into Google Assistant, Alexa and Siri. The hack uses low-powered lasers which send voice commands to the various AI. This made the smart speakers respond to light as if it were sound due to the low-powered lasers. This opens up new ways in which smart home devices can be hacked.
