ALL YOUR BASE ARE BLELONG TO US

Quote:
BLE isn’t difficult to attack.We gave a short demo and explanation at BSides Manchester this year. There are some good guides and tools out there, but the consequence of compromise isn’t often particularly significant. However, one category of smart device we found that often had weak BLE security were smart sex toys. You’ll doubtless know that we were shocked how easy it was to hijack a wi-fi camera dildo, we updated this work at SteelCon and reviewed a number of smart adult toys that used Bluetooth.

The other big issue is the lack of RF range, meaning that it isn’t easy to find devices in the absence of a http://wigle.net equivalent for Bluetooth. So we went hunting… and found some devices in an exploitable state… in people.

We had to give this a name. It didn’t take long: hunting for Bluetooth adult toys = screwdriving.

lol

I can easily see an anonymous app for controlling nearby devices being a big hit with people not wanting to know who's doing the controlling.

I just want 3% for the idea.

And lol again @ teledildonics

a Redditor discovered that their Lovense remote control app was unknowingly recording audio of a six-minute intimate session between the user and their significant other.

AI-Assisted Fake Porn Is Here and We’re All Fucked
Quote:
Someone used an algorithm to paste the face of 'Wonder Woman' star Gal Gadot onto a porn video, and the implications are terrifying.

[...]

A clip from the full video, hosted on SendVids, showing Gal Gadot's face on a porn star's body.

It's not going to fool anyone who looks closely. Sometimes the face doesn't track correctly and there's an uncanny valley effect at play, but at a glance it seems believable. It's especially striking considering that it's allegedly the work of one person

Who in god's name would want a camera mounted right on a dildo? That's not sexy; that would just look like somebody having their gall bladder out.

Who? SV robber barons.

Selling hardware does not have exponential growth potential, because people only need so many sex toys, and really successful models are likely to be cloned or imitated, driving down the price. For a "smart" sex toy startup to cash out its investors, it will need to have a second, much more profitable business, and that, inevitably, is private data about sex toy users.

But as a string of lawsuits and failed businesses and kickstarters have demonstrated, people don't want their sex toys to gather data on them (duh).

But Silicon Valley keeps reinventing the insight that one of the few areas of peoples' lives that isn't widely represented in the vast databanks of the surveillance-industrial complex is their sex lives, and therefore that data sells at a scarcity-driven premium, and creating new surveillance-dildos.
