" Charlie Miller is a well-known and active hacker due to his regular hacks
of popular web browsers at CanSecWest.

But his latest discovery is a hack found where no one else would
ever bother looking: the battery of an Apple laptop.

Miller has discovered that the chips used to monitor the rechargeable batteries in Apple’s MacBook, MacBook Pro, and MacBook Air lines can
be hacked with serious consequences. "
