More than 2 million recorded messages of a ‘smart teddy bear’ that allows children to record messages, and sent them to others, were leaked on the internet. The affected teddybears are from the brand CloudPets, part of Spiral Toys.

Yep. The manufacturers of “smart” toys cannot be trusted to protect anyone’s private data, because they don’t know how to properly encrypt anything.

Mayby if CloudPets goes out of business (and I strongly suspect it will) other manufacturers will take note, and learn from mistakes like this.
