Samsung vägrar fixa säkerhetshål i sin “smarta” TV

The Register:

A security researcher is complaining that Samsung isn’t making a serious response to a vulnerability in its Smart TVs.

The bug, discovered by pen-test outfit Neseso, concerns the televisions’ implementation of Wi-Fi Direct authentication. An attacker only needs to sniff out the MAC address of a trusted device to connect to the TV. From there they potentially enjoy a jump-off point to a target’s network.

Jag lär inte köpa en Samsung-TV så länge jag lever. Jag föreslår att ni som läser detta inte gör det heller.
