Luxury Toilet Haxord!

Luxury Toilet Users Waned of Haxorz!
Retailing for up to $5,686 (£3,821), the Satis toilet includes automatic flushing, bidet spray, music and fragrance release.

The toilet, manufactured by Japanese firm Lixil, is controlled via an Android app called My Satis.

But a hardware flaw means any phone with the app could activate any of the toilets, researchers say.

The toilet uses bluetooth to receive instructions via the app, but the Pin code for every model is hardwired to be four zeros (0000), meaning that it cannot be reset and can be activated by any phone with the My Satis app, a report by Trustwave's Spiderlabs information security experts reveals.

"An attacker could simply download the My Satis application and use it to cause the toilet to repeatedly flush, raising the water usage and therefore utility cost to its owner," it says in its report.

"Attackers could [also] cause the unit to unexpectedly open/close the lid, activate bidet or air-dry functions, causing discomfort or distress to [the] user."
Who wants to put in for a communal account app to mess with rich people's minds?

You just know that when the Robot Apocalypse comes, it won't be kicked off by some Schwarzenegger look-alike.

No! It will be the like of these crazy toilets that starts the robot rebellion.

Stephen King could have done something with this in Maximum Overdrive.

Don't give him ideas for the sequel, "Maximum Overflow."

Of course. But with those quips in the tank, I'm not sure this thread can a-commode-ate any more piss-taking. :mrgreen:

People can also store records of their bowel movements on the My Satis app.
Seems we've got that one covered with our Drabblenews Forum Comments app.
