Locktober Complications?

Cock Heads up, indeed. Well here we are, 6 days into Locktober, and this is a hell of an explosive article to come out this morning! There is a serious security flaw in the Cellmate chastity cage. Yikes. Like, lock your cock up with no escape kind of serious.

Cellmate Already Had Issues

I mentioned before the lack of an emergency release option that dissuaded many buyers from purchasing the Cellmate. Turns out that wasn't the only problem. There's a security flaw that allows anyone to hack into the device and lock it up! Check out Zack Whittaker's full article about it here.

Funny, I'm sitting here typing this and listening to Jonas Brothers "What a Man Gotta Do" (to be totally locked up by you). Heh heh. But typically you want your chosen partner to lock you up - not a stranger who hacked into your cage. Looks like bad news for Cellmate.

Here's the really important part of the article:

TechCrunch first learned of the vulnerability in June. The researchers contacted Qiui, based in China, about the flawed API. Taking the vulnerable API offline would have locked in anyone using the device. The developer pushed out a new API for new users, but left the unsecured API up for existing users.

Qiui chief executive Jake Guo told TechCrunch that a fix would arrive in August, but that deadline came and went. “We are a basement team,” he said. In a follow-up email explaining the risks to users, Guo said: “When we fix it, it creates more problems.”

In the end, Qiui missed the three self-imposed deadlines to fix the vulnerable API, said Lomas.

The decision to go public was made after Pen Test Partners learned of a separate security issue from another researcher, who also found it difficult to get a response from Qiui. “This reinforced our decision to publish: clearly others were likely to find these issues independent of us, so the public interest case was made in our minds,” wrote Lomas.

So if you have a Cellmate, how do you know whether it one with the vulnerable API or one of the new ones? Good question. For now - Spread the word...cocks and cock owners will thank you!

The last line of Zack's article made me laugh

Practice safe sex; don’t use a smart device.

Not wanting to cast aspersions on Zack - this is an excellent (and very timely Locktober) article, but is sounds like a tech guy who is so aware of the vulnerability of app-controlled devices and the subject matter of this one frankly had him squirming while typing on his laptop. There are some perfectly wonderful app-controlled sex toys. And here's another teaser: I'll be writing about my experiences with one of them soon! But for now...
