Hackers Could Steal Your Secret Fetishes from a Sex Robot

Sex robots of the future could be hacked by sick cybercriminals looking to steal your most intimate details, a security expert has warned. Cameras and microphones connected to the devices could be commandeered by remote hackers looking to record filthy clips that they can use to blackmail users.

 Tim Mackey, senior technical adviser at software and computer chip firm Synopsys, says hackers could easily exploit people’s relationships with their sex robots as the technology behind them advances. He says sex robots of the future will likely collect data on their users to build a more “personalized experience.”  “Users are always expecting more from their smart gadgets, and security has not kept pace,” Mackey said.
