Hackers Could Order Sex Robots To KILL Their Owners, Cyber Security Experts Warn
I never would’ve dreamed it, but there are now so many news stories about sex robots, I finally got around to making a “sex robots” tag for this blog.
There are advantages to being celibate. Not only can celibates avoid being exploited (used by a guy for sex then dumped the next day), but celibates can avoid getting sexually transmitted diseases and avoid this…

Cyber criminals could easily breach sex robots’ inner defences, expert claims
Hackers could then attack owners by controlling the robots’ arms and legs
If the robots are connected to the internet they could be remotely accessed
The androids will be far simpler to hack than modern phones and computers
Hackers could one day order sex robots to kill their human lovers, a cyber security expert has warned.
Cyber criminals could easily breach the robots’ inner defences and turn them against their human owners, lecturer Dr Nick Patterson says.
Hacking into modern-day robots would be far simpler than accessing more sophisticated devices like smartphones and computers, he claims.
The technology expert, from Deakin University in Victoria, Australia, told the Star Online: ‘Hackers can hack into a robot or a robotic device and have full control of the connections, arms, legs and other attached tools like in some cases knives or welding devices.
‘Once a robot is hacked, the hacker has full control and can issue instructions to the robot.’
Sex androids will use an operating system, much like modern computers or phones, Dr Patterson said.
This means that if the system is ever connected to the internet it could be vulnerable to hackers.
