Vulnerabilities Found In Smart Scale
A new smart scale, the Smart Scale PW 5653 by AEG, has been found to be vulnerable to DoS and Man-in-Middle attacks when analyzed by researchers.
The vulnerabilities were mostly accomplished through exploits in the devices bluetooth connections. If the device were connected to the owners phone via bluetooth, by extension the phone would become vulnerable as well, as the devices app requests location and access to storage be turned on. The device was further shown through the iOS app to send user information to a server in China without the knowledge of the user.
