Samsung Smart TVs Could Allow Remote Spying

Instead of you watching TV, your TV might be watching you! eek!

It could give an attacker the ability to access any file available on the remote device, as well as external devices (such as USB drives) connected to the TV. And, in a Orwellian twist, the hole could be used to access cameras and microphones attached to the Smart TVs, giving remote attacker the ability to spy on those viewing a compromised set.
