The smart toilet is vulnerable via its built-in Bluetooth radio, allowing hackers to remotely open or close the lid, flush the toilet, or, perhaps most perturbingly, activate the built-in bidet function.
The toilet, which is called the Satis and made by Lixil (a Japanese firm, of course), includes Bluetooth functionality so that it can be controlled by a companion smartphone app called My Satis. My Satis lets you control all of the toilet’s functions, including the flusher, bidet, and hot-air blower — and it also lets you track your bowel movements.
