Virtual reality (VR) security and privacy are not limited to existing software solutions and applications. In this article, we present to the community the challenges of VR systems with robot integration. Integrating robots under ROS poses a massive risk in terms of data security. At the same time, using a robot for simulations in VR requires, first and foremost, the user's safety - hence redundant data collection and sharing. We want to draw the community's attention to these problems through our example in order to ensure that such systems are thoroughly developed in all directions and well prepared for further deployment to the consumer market.
