Jacuzzis could be hacked, turned into 'hot, stinky soup,' researcher warns

File this under something I wouldn't have thought of...

Hot tub maker Jacuzzi is in hot water after a cybersecurity researcher said he found vulnerabilities in its app that risk exposing user data and let hackers remotely control tubs. 

Jacuzzi’s “SmartTub” app — which lets users control hot tubs’ temperature, lighting and jets from their phones — is vulnerable to hackers, according to a cybersecurity researcher who publishes under the pseudonym EatonWorks. 

Eaton wrote that they were able to access personal information about Jacuzzi customers around the world, including contact information.
