    So I remember when the Olympics in Sochi Russia took place and athletes were saying that they were immediately getting hacked as they arrived at the airport. I also remember media telling people to turn their devices off immediately when they arrived.

    My question is, how could these athletes be hacked that quickly? My only thought would be that they connected to insecure wifi, or there was FakeAP. But even then if you’re spoofing networks, it takes time for the person to connect and start doing and accessing information. I guess there could have been some undisclosed RCE exploit used
