While almost nobody needs a panini press that can sign into Twitter, the powers that be clearly believe otherwise, adding internet connectivity to many of the pleasantly dumb devices that used to populate our homes. This raises a number of obvious security concerns and one equally serious, but far less discussed issue: porn on everything, always.

On Sunday, antivirus pioneer John McAfee brought attention to the imminent X-rated threat, tweeting a photo of a Home Depot smart fridge that had somehow tapped into the internet of butts.

“The [internet of things].... do you believe me now?” wrote McAfee. “Pornhub on a refrigerator. What, in our current cybersecurity paradigm, accounts for this?”

The answer, of course, is nothing. If you want a picture of the future, imagine an oven staring at a human ass—forever.

I don’t really see this as a security issue. I mean if someone wants to watch porn on their fridge, what’s the problem with that?

There are huge security issues with the internet of things, largely centered around the general lack of software updates (but certainly not limited to that), but the user being able to go to the page they want to is not a flaw.

Home Depot of course should have some sort of filtering on their internet connection so things like this don’t show up in store.
