Default Talky Bird Toys Get Goldenmaned


The same researchers whose hack on the My Friend Cayla doll prompted regulatory action have followed up with a hack on a talking toy robot bird.

Researchers from UK security consultancy Pen Test Partners found that it was child’s play to turn the Teksta Toucan talking toy into a potty-mouth. In homage to The Fast Show the Toucan was induced to swear like Unlucky Alf’s parrot, as the video (below) illustrates.

“We knew that the Toucan had much in common with My Friend Cayla and iQue, so had a go at the same attacks, explained Pen Test Partner’s Ken Munro.

More at source. The comments are a hoot too.

My confirmation bias is better 'n your confirmation bias.
