Samsung Smart TVs Could Be Hacked to Watch You

The next time you relax in front of your Samsung Smart TV, please put on some clothes. big grin That’s the word out of the Black Hat security conference referencing the real possibility of someone hacking into your TV and taking over control of your remoteآ….and your camera. eek!

Because the TV only has a single user, any type of compromise into an application or into Smart Hub, which is the operating system--the smarts of the TV--has the same permission as every user, you can do everything and anything.
