‘Smart’ Male Chastity Device Vulnerable To Locking By Hackers: Researchers

A security flaw in an internet-connected male chastity device could allow hackers to remotely lock it — leaving users trapped, researchers have warned.

The Cellmate, produced by Chinese firm Qiui, is a cover that clamps on the base of the male genitals with a hardened steel ring, and does not have a physical key or manual override.

The locking mechanism is controlled with a smartphone app via Bluetooth — marketed as both an anti-cheating and a submission sex play device — but security researchers have found multiple flaws that leave it vulnerable to hacking.

“We discovered that remote attackers could prevent the Bluetooth lock from being opened, permanently locking the user in the device. There is no physical unlock,” British security firm Pen Test Partners said Tuesday.

“An angle grinder or other suitable heavy tool would be required to cut the wearer free.”

Smart Chastity Sex Toy Could Have Been Hacked to Permanently Lock Users In

Security flaws in the app for an internet-connected male chastity device could have allowed hackers to permanently lock a user’s penis into the sex toy, researchers have revealed.

Pen Test Partners, a security firm based in the U.K., discovered the vulnerabilities in the Qiui Cellmate smart chastity lock in April. It said that because there is no way to manually unlock the device, an “angle grinder or other suitable heavy tool would be required to cut the wearer free.”

It’s a chilling thought, and Pen Test Partners says it discovered numerous security deficiencies in the app.

While the possibility of getting locked into the chastity device was the most eye-catching danger of those discovered by the security firm, it is also notable that the app was leaking a litany of potentially highly sensitive user data, including names, locations, birthdays, passwords and phone numbers, which could be used for extortion, fraud
