This was a very interesting BUZZ that I found today and wanted to share with you.

Virtual reality systems like the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift are so immersive that they require digital barriers so you don’t run into a real wall in the middle of an intense game.But there’s nothing stopping an attacker from changing what you see in VR, according to researchers from the University of New Haven in Connecticut. The researchers found that in a controlled attack, they were able to alter what a person could see in VR on the Oculus Rift and the Vive.In fact, the systems include no protection to stop these kinds of attacks, Ibrahim Baggili, director of the university’s Cyber Forensics Research and Education Group (Unhcfreg), and the paper’s co-author, Peter Gronkowski, said in an interview.The research comes in two papers, one published in April, and another currently under peer review by academics. The researchers are set to present their findings in May at a workshop that is part of a conference for the IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy.
