Samsung Smart TVs: The next frontier for

January 06 [Sun], 2013, 17:02
Smart TVs, particularly() , can be hacked to give attackers remote access according to a security startup calledReVuln. The company says it discovered a zero-day exploit that hackers could potentially use to perform malicious activities that range fromstealing accounts linked through apps to using built-in webcams and microphones to spy on unsuspecting couch potatoes.Dont panic just yet, though. In order for the exploit to be activated, a hacker needs to plug a USB drive loaded with malicious software into the actual TV to bypass the Linux-based OS/firmware on Samsungs Smart TVs. But, if a hacker were to pull that off, every piece of data stored on a Smart TV could theoretically be retrieved.

As if the possibility of someone stealing your information and spying on you isnt scary enough,according toComputerWorld, it is also possible to copy the configuration of a TVs remote control, which would allow a hacker to copy the remote controls settings, and remotely change the channel.

ReVuln toldThe Register it hasnt informed Samsung of the vulnerability and plans to sell the details ofin hopes of speeding up development of a fix. A video of the exploit as proof from ReVuln follows below.
