    yikes! in the Wikileaks / CIA Hacking docs, there is even a tool in place to take control of one's Raspberry PI!

    Of course I'm not sure why one would want to control my Pi.... but it still bothers me. It's MY PI dammit!

    I'm pretty sure every publicly-available OS has had exploit code written for it by state actors. Given that most are based on Linux, Windows, Mac-whatever, or some combination, it's just too easy to port one to another.

    When you look at how Pi is used in many industrial processes, having an exploit for the Pi is actually a valuable tool for a state actor, because it makes targeting infrastructure easier.
