'Extremely chatty' Samsung smart TVs pose major security risk to government, healthcare and energy companies
Research into the security risks of Internet of Things (IoT) devices has revealed that Samsung smart TVs pose a worrying risk to enterprise.
Without any interaction by a human, Samsung smart TVs "incessantly" communicate with a server which uses an untrusted security certificate, opening up the potential for hackers to target these devices which are increasingly used in many highly regulated industries including healthcare, energy and government.
The risks are potentially huge, allowing hackers to use the TVs to spy on corporate boardrooms, monitor video conferencing and even steal sensitive data from USB sticks and PCs connected to the smart TVs.
