  • All Your Coffee Are Belong To Us

    Hi all

    Slashdot have just got an interestig post up:
    http://it.slashdot.org/it/08/06/17/1941200.shtml
    (and original post here http://www.securityfocus.com/archive/1/493387)

    "A Jura F90 Coffee maker with the Jura Internet Connection Kit can be taken over be a remote attacker. It also has a few software vulnerabilities. Fun things you can do with a Jura coffee maker:
    1. Change the preset coffee settings (make weak or strong coffee)
    2. Change the amount of water per cup (say 300ml for a short black) and make a puddle
    3. Break it by engineering settings that are not compatible (and making it require a service)
    "

    :-)

    PS. If you dont know "All your base are belong to us" find the video via Google :-)

        Someone set us up the brew

        Still, not a strong candidate for hacking - unless Bill Gates owns one.
        I guess if your Internet connection is via a router/gateway, you might be able to secure it abit better. The question is why you would spend so much money on this? As one commentator put it:

        Well, if youre the kind of person who needs their coffee networked and on the internet, something tells me you really deserve the hassles

          I liked this comment in one of those links:

          A simpler solution is, when putting your coffee maker on the Internet, to make sure JavaScript is turned off.
