Networked Percolators at Risk of Distributed Denial-of-Coffee Attack

Internet-connected espresso machine vulnerable to hackers.
The Jura Impressa F90 espresso machine can be hooked up to the Internet. The web hookup can be used to diagnose problems remotely and spare the customer a trip to the repair shop.

Security expert Craig Wright is warning the tech community that the Jura has unfixable security holes that imperil the security of their caffeine supply. Hackers could water down your joe at a distance, cause coffee floods, or even break the machine.
