A gondola ride

hack gondola ride
Hey, why are the doors opening?

A gondola ride over a ski resort is a fun way to enjoy the mountain view. But not if you stop in the middle of the ride and the doors open.

Anyone could do that with a click of a button, even if they were sitting thousands of miles away. That's because this French ski resort put the control systems for the gondola ride on the Internet.

Attempts to contact the company were unsuccessful.
