Getting hacked through a coffee maker!

Hi All,
I have a Jura F90 Coffee maker with the Jura Internet Connection Kit. The idea is to:

"Enable the Jura Impressa F90 to communicate with the Internet, via a PC.
Download parameters to configure your espresso machine to your own personal taste.
If there's a problem, the engineers can run diagnostic tests and advise on the solution without your machine ever leaving the kitchen."

Guess what - it can not be patched as far as I can tell Wink It also has a few software vulnerabilities.

Fun things you can do with a Jura coffee maker:
1. Change the preset coffee settings (make weak or strong coffee)
2. Change the amount of water per cup (say 300ml for a short black) and make a puddle
3. Break it by engineering settings that are not compatible (and making it require a service)

The connectivity kit uses the connectivity of the PC it is running on to connect the coffee machine to the internet. This allows a remote coffee machine "engineer" to diagnose any problems and to remotely do a preliminary service.

Best yet, the software allows a remote attacker to gain access to the Windows XP system it is running on at the level of the user.

Compromise by Coffee.

Well, people have joked that Emacs (a text editor) is so big it's practically it's own operating system.

Maybe with one of these machines, some one can make an Editing MACro to make coffee loool

I'd take one of those: push a button on my comp and when I go down my coffee's ready.

Yes, I'm totally lazy.

they're very expensive, don't you guys think.?

Well, I guess it would be worth it if the coffee maker was on the ground floor and you work on the 35th haha !
