Samsung Smart TV Owner Learning About Majority Of Features From Leaked CIA Documents

 

DERRY, NH—Admitting that he never fully understood the device’s capabilities, local man Andrew Thurston told reporters Thursday that he was learning about the majority of his Samsung Smart TV’s features from the trove of CIA hacking documents released by WikiLeaks.
Man, there’s probably a whole bunch of other cool stuff I don’t even know about yet.” Sources confirmed that Thurston would not learn about most of the features included in his home’s smart thermostat, smart speaker, or smart baby monitor until subsequent CIA documents were leaked.
“I guess they can pull your web browsing data, too—I didn’t even know I could use the TV to search the internet.
I thought it was just for watching Netflix and stuff.
“Until I found out the CIA can hack into the microphone to listen in on your conversations, I had no idea my TV could even do voice activation,” said Thurston, 41, who only discovered that the 46-inch Samsung UNF7500 model that he had purchased in 2013 contained a built-in camera by reading that the CIA could be using it to spy on him.

As it stated in Last month, Forbes revealed the FBI had successfully searched the Samsung TV of a suspect as part of an investigation into child sexual abuse material.
As shown in recent cases, Samsung Smart TVs have been the subject of both privacy and security concerns.
Amongst the many, many CIA exploits of Apple, Google and Microsoft consumer technology in today’s Wikileaks massive info dump was a particularly novel project to spy on Samsung smart TVs.
The Shodan search engine for connected devices has also been able to harvest information on some Samsung TVs that are exposed on the web, possibly leaving them open to hackers anywhere on the planet.
This could mean the CIA had found a way to prevent the Samsung device from updating automatically, or at all.
