Another Milestone For Internet of Things: Wi-Fi Vibrator Hacked

An enterprising penetration(heh) testing company Pen Test Partners have been looking at a security of sex toys lately. That’s what we call dedication to penetration (testing).

Their latest victim has been Svakom Siime Eye, a vibrator endoscope.

This $150 camera-equipped vibrator comes with a smartphone app. You connect the smartphone to the vibrator’s wi-fi access point ???? , launch the app and enjoy the video stream coming from the camera. Which could reside anywhere at this point.

The penetration testers found that the dildo’s web server ???? is configured with a blank password for the “admin” account. This means that they can connect via wi-fi to any dildo in their immediate vicinity and take a look at the video originating from the dildo’s owner… body parts.

It’s even possible to locate various Internet of Things vibrators locations via a wardriving website and get close to it, then hack it. And they say that hacking is boring.

Svakom’s toy is another Internet of Things device which is needlessly exposed to the Internet. We need more of those.
