K10 readies for action, just as Vanta submits the droid and Bibingui shuts Purr1t0 down. It seems you didn’t hurt the droid, but it might be best not turning it on for now. K10 makes a wise decision turning their communicator off, his questions resonates with the party -What happened to Purr1t0?-

Jojo gets on the top of the shuttle and looks with a pair of simple binoculars. “Nav’s rest is ahead buddies, we gotta hurry, things look rough over there.”

@FloggMunkies, you are free to check K10’s status.

The speeders left by the droids you just beat seem like they’re in good shape, you may take them, if you wish.

What will you do?

Having a moment to breathe (so to speak) K10 activates a basic program to scan for any unwelcome software or other signs of intrusion on their own system. (13 vs Computer Operations 11) The subroutine returns a negative for infection, which K10 counts a inconclusive result. K10 ponders the possible cause of the problem, combing through their memory banks for any info they've picked up as an independent droid concerned with their mental autonomy that would apply to this situation. (6 thanks to Luck vs modified Computer Programming 10)

During or after this process is going on in their head, they'll approach one of the abandoned speeders and mount it, see if the controls are unsecured.

Purr1t0 is down, Bibingui is checking the astromech when she remembers her exoskeleton was broken during the shuttle’s collision; she won’t be able to reach the pedals of the speeder and asks for help.

Jojo offers Bibingui a hand, “I could drive the speeder with you, but what will you do with the ‘loot’?” He tells her that they could try “towing” the droid, “Might be risky, but we could take a wire from the shuttle and drag the dark trooper using the metal panel you cut, the improvised sledge should be enough to also carry Purr1t0 with minimal harm”.

While Bibingui and Jojo prepare the droids for the ride, Vanta hops on the speeder and makes a test ride. He pushes the pedal to the metal and disappears like a flash*, then he’s back.

Purr1t0 is neutralized, but its status worries K10 a big deal (perhaps as much as it worries Bibingui). Being also a droid, K10 understands that finding the cause of droids going rampart is a pressing matter, especially after finding several rogues in so little time… So, K10 makes a quick check of their own systems, everything seems OK. Then they check the next available system, the speeder’s computer. Cautiously, K10 makes analyses the system, and discovers something quite interesting:

Connecting to the speeder’s navigation system forces a droid to shut-down and power on, forcing a cold-boot sequence. As the system powers on the droid, it also sends a chain of unauthenticated code that is executed from the boot instruction read-only memory. In conclusion, malicious code is loaded at startup; since this happens at the very first moment of boot, no security has been enabled, leaving almost all systems vulnerable to this exploit.

You are yet to discover how such a thing got there…

* You just happen to have an experience like this one, but without pursuers.

Bibingui is surprised with Vanta!!! “Vanta come back here!” However…Bibingui is very sad because of Purrito's situation and a bit worried about her gun, she decides that she will go pick her gun. She asks for Jojo's help, and K10’s. “ K10 can you take me on your speedbike?” , “Jojo we hardly know each other, I appreciate the help you offer me, but Jojo could also help me pick up my things”(she looks at him with a cute face) (⁎⁍̴̆Ɛ⁍̴̆⁎)

K10 nods. "I have no problem driving you. I should inform you - be cautious connecting to any local computer systems. I've discovered malicious software on the bike's systems designed to bypass common security on droid brains. I suspect the same software was on the shuttle's system - your friend had interfaced with it, yes?"

K10 invites Bibingui to mount the speeder before firing up the repulsorlift (quite consciously using the controls for organic folk), ready to leave.
