Internet of Things — Hacker Demands Bitcoin Ransom to Unlock Chastity Cage

“The only way to get out is to cut through the steel. Given where it’s at, it’s going to be quite hard to get out of.”

January 17 2021 — The COVID lockdown is taking its toll on many people. Not surprisingly, the sale of internet-connected sex toys is booming. Be careful. Any device connected to the internet can be hacked. And you do not want your sex toy to be hacked because it can be quite unpleasant. Follow us on Twitter: @INTEL_TODAY

Security researchers found that the app’s interface was accessible online without a password, potentially allowing a hacker or malicious third party to take over any Cellmate user’s device remotely.” Business Insider (Oct. 6 2020)

During the holiday season, a hacker took control of CELLMATE chastity cages and demanded a ransom to be paid in Bitcoin to unlock these Chinese made internet-connected sex toys.

Popular in the “BDSM” community, CELLMATE is a chastity box that users put around their penis to prevent erections.

Right from the start, experts pointed out a major design flaw of the CELLMATE. This device has no emergency override. [Cellmate chastity cage review by Ezada Sinn]

In October 2020, security researchers discovered that this device could easily be hacked.

And sure enough, it happened.

Victims realized their cage was definitely locked and they could not remove it. The hacker demanded a payment of 0.02 Bitcoin (around $750 today) to unlock the device. 

Lesson learned?

Like all internet-of-things devices, smart sex toys are also incredibly vulnerable.

Teledildonics — as internet-connected sexual pleasure products are known — can be a privacy nightmare, both in the cyber world and the real world.

So, if you plan to buy a smart sex toy, please do your home work, or you may one day find yourself in a bind.

“Be very, very careful what you put in that head, because you will never, ever get it out.”

Archbishop Thomas Wolsey (1473 -1530)
