Tech Firms Claims Svakom Camera Vibe Can Be Easily Hacked

BUCKINGHAM, England—Pen Test Partners, a tech firm that specializes in penetration testing and security services, tested the Siime Eye vibrator from Svakom and claims the pleasure product can be easily hacked. In a blog post last week, researchers said they began testing the toy following the We-Vibe lawsuit and settlement, and their “jaws hit the floor.” The post starts by talking about some features of the products, wondering if there’s a reason the vibe should also be a Wi-Fi access point, and should it contain hidden functionality to connect itself to Skype. “It is a pretty normal, slightly awkwardly-shaped vibrator with a camera in the end. It costs $250. But, more relevant than the novelty/enjoyment value of the product and its price, is what it’s running, how we hacked it, and why it’s an interesting case of another IoT device produced without much care or attention,” the post reads. The post goes on to point out that hackers within range of the Siime Eye could access its video stream if the default password was not changed, or if the user’s new password were figure out. Pen Test Partners researchers said they decided to publish their findings in the blog post after reaching out to Svakom several times but getting no response. But on its website, Svakom does issue a warning that buyers change the default password. “We always recommend our users to create a strong password,” the site reads. “Most of the electronics devices including our smartphones, Wifi routers are vulnerable to be attacked by hackers. We all hate these unwanted things happening to technical gadgets. So we suggest all our Siime Eye users to change their passwords.” Svakom also stated the vulnerabilities are linked to those who use the Siime Eye with their laptop; the company recommends the device be linked to a smartphone. Svakom issued an update to the software recently that reportedly increases security on the Siime Eye. AVN reached out to Svakom for comment but had not heard back as of post time. But regardless of the update, it's worth heading Pen Test Partners' advice: “If you’re a user, change the Wi-Fi password to something complex and long.” Read the complete blog post at PenTestPartners.com.
