Are you being watched by your TV?

  • Two security researchers from iSEC Partners said today's televisions that are connected with internet could be hacked. They explained the loopholes that had been found in the older Samsung models, which allowed turning on a TV's video camera without the users' knowledge. 

    Although, Samsung has closed the loopholes, such vulnerabilities are found every now and then. What would be disturbing for Americans is that organizations such as NSA could easily look into people's living rooms given that the programs that are used to do so are almost undetectable. 

    The good news is that hacking a TV is not possible unless users engage in a chat session or look up a Web page on their sets.
