Connected objects present a risk of being hacked and sex toys are no exception to the rule. This is what happened to some users of the Cellmate male chastity belt.
The device was stuck in the closed position, without the possibility of opening it with the smartphone app. For the most innocent, or those who do not have too much imagination, this device is designed to imprison the penis and prevent erection, as long as the “cage” is not opened.
But if a hacker takes control of this connected object, users can find themselves in serious embarrassment. According to a security researcher, the hacker said to one of his victims: “your cock is mine now” (“your penis is mine now”).
Another victim told the site Vice that the hacker demanded a ransom of 0.02 Bitcoin, or about $ 750. But he was lucky because he was not carrying the device with him when the hacker locked down.
The problem with this device was detected last October by security researchers. They have discovered many loopholes that can be exploited to take control of this chastity belt 2.0.
