Samsung Smart TV 0day

Postby Zero-Fear » Wed Dec 12, 2012 9:25 pm

"Samsung's Smart TV has a vulnerability which allows remote attackers to swipe data, according to security researchers.

Malta-based security start-up ReVuln claims to have discovered a zero-day vulnerability affecting Smart TV, in particularly a Samsung TV LED 3D."

Saw this the other day, but the exploit doesn't take advantage of the built in webcams that are on so many of the TVs...

Some a running stripped down versions of Android.
Every day the line between what is & isn't a computer gets blurrier.
