Internet-connected Single Serve Coffee Maker has Security Issues

The Jura F90 Super-automatic espresso and coffee maker
can be hacked because the espresso machine can be accessed via the internet
for diagnostics and setting up the espresso machine.

We truly live in modern times when your single serve coffee maker can be connected online and hacked to make weak coffee. We've reviewed other models that didn't have the ability to be connected, but think it's pretty wild this $2,000 Jura F90 coffee maker can be connected to the Internet for remote control of the settings and be hacked. This can open up your PC to remote attacks, a security expert says. Once connected to the Internet the Jura F90 lets you set the strength of your espresso or coffee and get remote diagnostic info over the internet that would be used to send to the company if there's a problem.

"I don't know if many people would target this particular vulnerability because there probably are not a lot of coffee makers at the moment that are Internet-connected, and in my case it's behind a firewall," the owner who found the issue said.

With internet enabled kitchen devices becoming more widely available, expect more security issues in the future. We think having someone hack your single serve coffee maker isn't the end of the world, but perhaps we'll keep our larger appliance like the oven disconnected.
