    The ultimate in Irony would have been if the RIAA had sent the notices as printjobs directly to the printers. (Yes, I know, the RIAA didn't know they were finding printers)

The IP's they injected traced back to printers and photocopiers. Basically making the point that the RIAA was just targeting IPs and not verifying that anything was downloaded.

    Or the printers, or fax machines, or label maker. That would be freaking awesome though. "I'm sorry Mr. RIAA, we tracked down the streaming bittorrent of the latest Marylin Manson ABBA tribute album to the coffee maker."

    Okay, this made me curious, so I looked it up. Poor guys, the first four hits are about the vulnerability. However:

    $1,798.00!!!! That's INSANE.

    http://www.amazon.com/Jura-Capresso-.../dp/B00008I8NT

    Good old Amazon will give you free shipping, and it's *on sale*, down from $2,250.00 (lucky for us).

    I would *never* buy such a thing. I don't like any coffee maker that does anything other than make coffee. Espresso? If I wanted such a thing, then I'd want a different machine for it. Man, I've bought *cars* for less money than that.

    Mmmmm.... Coffee (Moka Java this morning, thanks for asking).

    I'd think the other concern with these things is that many of them do send out emails in case of trouble, which means they have some sort of SMTP engine in them. How easily could they be turned into spam relays?

    started a topic "Java" Security

    "Java" Security

    Vulnerabilities found in Jura F90 Coffee maker with the Jura Internet Connection Kit.

    Ok, Ok, the thread title is real groaner of a pun, I admit it, but the link does point out a real security issue in an actual embedded device. The implications of this isn't so much that someone changed the temperature of your espresso, but the problem with overlooking security in embedded devices. While we're all worried about things like whether the company's database servers has the latest patches, someone could be owning the coffee maker (or other embedded device) and using it for a springboard for elevating their privileges or other attack.
