Technical Toilet Trouble

Posted

A security lab, delivering a report to the makers of software for a luxury Japanese toilet, warned that a flaw in their Android program renders the toilet hackable – even while a user sits on it. The Satis (which retails for about $5,600) includes automatic flushing, bidet spray, fragrance-spritzing and music, according to an August BBC News report. It's controllable by a "My Satis" cellphone app. But the PIN to operate the app is unalterably "0000," which means that a prankster with the app could create some uncomfortable mischief in a public restroom.
