A security flaw in a hi-tech chastity belt for men meant the device could be locked remotely by hackers. The flaw also made it possible for hackers to remotely lock all the global devices simultaneously.
A team of UK security professionals flagged
the bug to Qiui, the Chinese developers of the app that controls the internet-linked sheath called the Cellmate Chastity Cage.
The developers have now fixed the bug in the sex toy's app and have also published a manual workaround, which will be
useful for anyone with the old version of the app still at risk of getting stuck.
The Cellmate Chastity Cage is sold online for about $190. Tech-researchers Pen Test Partners believe about 40,000 of the devices have been sold.
