Eleven years old and already a cyber-security expert

Reuben Paul is an eleven-year-old boy who goes to school in Austin, Texas, during the day and turns into a cyber-security researcher at night. With the help of his father - who works in the IT security industry - Reuben has become an authority when it comes to exposing the failings of smart devices. He recently stunned experts at a conference in the Netherlands when he hacked into a teddy bear connected to the internet. He told BBC Newsday what he was trying to achieve through this experiment.
