December 17, 2012

Viewers, beware: while you’re watching TV, your TV might be watching you back. A security firm discovered that Samsung’s Smart TV can give hackers access to the device’s built-in camera and microphones, allowing them to watch everything you do.

The Malta-based firm ReVuln posted a video showing its team of researchers hacking into one of the Samsung TVs and accessing its settings, channel lists, widgets, USB drives, and remote control configurations. The security flaw allows hackers to access any and all personal data stored on the TV.“We can install malicious software to gain complete root access to the TV,” the video writes.

Smart TV will allow hackers access to crack the code of  TV viewers. ‘To Start Press Any Key’. Where’s the ANY key?
