    You can hack/jailbreak/compromise nearly every computing device out there if you have physical access and enough skills, time and resources. History shows no hardware or software is perfect and if people are trying it's only a matter of time until an exploit is found.

    Somebody jailbroke a Nintendo switch, a portable gaming platform where ultra-security is not going to be prioritised or really expected. Meh, it's far less worrying that a catalogue of other security issues out there but I'm sure people will take the time to bash Nvidia hard for no real reason.
