Sex toy company admits to recording users' remote sex sessions, calls it a 'minor bug'
Hong Kong-based sex toy company Lovense's remote control vibrator app (Lovense Remote) recorded a use session without their knowledge. An audio file lasting six minutes was stored in the app's local folder. The users says he or she gave the app access to the mic and camera but only to use with the in-app chat function and to send voice clips on command — not constant recording when in use. Other users confirmed this app behavior, too.
A user claiming to represent Lovense responded and called this recording a "minor bug" that only affects Android users. Lovense also says no information or data was sent to the company's servers, and that this audio file exists only temporarily. An update issued today should fix the bug.

How long before see eye ayy hack this and use it for assassinations?
Perhaps they already have back door access...
The device in question is Hush by Lovense, which is billed by the company as "the world's first teledildonic butt plug" that you can "control from anywhere!"
Unfortunately for Lovense, the butt plug has also joined a host of other teledildonic products that are remarkable for being insecure. In other words, even though you can control your butt plug "from anywhere," it would appear that anyone within Bluetooth range can control it, too.
