Samsung Lied -- Its Smart TV Is Indeed Spying on You

If you own one of the newer Samsung smart TV’s, make sure you are on your best behavior when in front of your TV, because someone is listening in on your conversations and it’s Samsungآ…..only for voice research of course. roll eyes (sarcastic) The guys at the Daily Beast did a little digging into Samsung’s policies, you know, the ones we never read, and found some interesting facts on their voice research.

But now we're learning that the data which Samsung gleans from its Smart TVs is not encrypted. Ken Munro and David Lodge, from the London-based Pen Test Partners tested one of Samsung’s smart TVs to discover that the TV was uploading audio files in an unencrypted form.
