Smart toilet hacked; anyone can remotely harass toilet's occupant

quote:

In an advisory issued August 1, Trustwave warned of a Bluetooth security vulnerability in Inax's Satis automatic toilet.

Functions of the Satis—including the raising and lowering of its lid and operation of its bidet and flushing nozzles—can be remotely controlled from an Android application called "My Satis" over a Bluetooth connection. But the Bluetooth PIN to pair with the toilet—"0000"—is hard-coded into the app. "As such, any person using the 'My Satis' application can control any Satis toilet," the security advisory noted. "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. Attackers could cause the unit to unexpectedly open/close the lid, [or] activate bidet or air-dry functions, causing discomfort or distress to user."

And you thought the only thing you had to worry about was dropping your phone into the toilet.

on a related note, slamming the stall door in the restrooms in my office building triggered the auto-flush on the toliet 2 stalls over.

there was someone in there.

i slammed the door about 4x until the guy yells out "frickING STOP"

csb


eta there's also a search engine for 'smart devices' on the web you can use to hack people's thermostats, garage door openers, etc.

What problem was this bluetooth toilet and app created to solve? Who would ever think "This toilet on which I am sitting right now is too far away for me to flush by depressing the lever, but fortunately I've got my phone right here!" I honestly cannot see a real world use case for this.
