A report placed by Ars Technica that shows the proof of the concept that the outsider can easily hack a smart TV with the help of earthly radio signals, which will able to control a large portion of the Smart TVs around the globe.
Ars Technica has demonstrated the process by their safety mentor Rafael Scheel, who recycled a cheap transmitter to implant the malicious instructions into a rogue TV signal, which on broadcasted will allow a path access to desired televisions. The documented hacking demonstration was done on Samsung equipment which was also be cleared that this is not the only electronic equipment which is being prone to hack, but others are not immune, they can be hacked as well.
It is said by the security consultant of Ars Technica Rafael Scheel, as well as many other security researchers that if a hacker got control over a particular television, and can able to harm the end users of the particular television. It is also possible to hack through a Smart TV and its surrounding devices like the devices linked with the home network. One of the possible things is when the hacker hacks into a Smart TV; they were capable of using the camera on the TV set without knowing the user, which has many risks.
As per many security consultants, the hackers does not follow any sorts of discipline, which makes them more dangerous, and it makes hard to trace them as they don’t have any sorts of physical access on the devices.
