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.
The Netherlands top footbal team FC Emmen will be allowed to display the logo of a sex toys company on their shirts, following a decision of the Dutch football association (KNVB) to reverse a ban.
Emmen were stopped last week from displaying the logo
of new sponsors EasyToys, on online sex toys business, but the decision was reversed after a compromise. The EasyToys logo will adorn the shirt of FC Emmen's first team for this season, instead of the previously proposed 3 year sponsorship.
Previously KNVB said:
It is not appropriate to display sponsorship from the sex industry on match kit, said a statement from the association, noting it was in violation of their regulations. We must take into account that football is for both
young and old.
The KNVB were then given a bit of stick in the media for being out of touch.
