Is Prey secure?

This page says that Prey would allow attackers to run any code on your computer as root by hijacking your communications. Is this true? What kind of security does Prey have?

If the hacker is good enuf yes. Any software can be hacked and used against you, like Java, Chrome, Opera, Firefox and so on. But the question is, is it a bigger chance that someone hack your computer (very hard to do) or Steal your computer (very easy).

Great open source security app!

This app could come in very hand if your phone or computer were to be stolen. It'll track the location and use of the device and send them to you! I've had the problem that my Android would automatically be reported as missing which is quite annoying, but it might be specific for my phone..

Here is a great story of a guy got his stolen laptop back: http://lifehacker.com/5838440/how-i-got-my-stolen-laptop-back-within-24-hours-using-prey
