“Luxury toilet users warned of hardware flaw”
“…the Satis toilet includes automatic flushing, bidet spray, music and fragrance release…is controlled via an Android app called My Satis.
…a hardware flaw means any phone with the app could activate any of the toilets…
“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.”
“It’s easy to see how a practical joker might be able to trick his neighbours into thinking his toilet is possessed as it squirts water and blows warm air unexpectedly on their intended victim, but it’s hard to imagine how serious hardened cybercriminals would be interested in this security hole,” he told the BBC.”
