KD6W Posted June 16, 2014 Share Posted June 16, 2014 http://www.forbes.com/sites/bruceupbin/2014/06/06/red-button-flaw-exposes-major-vulnerability-in-millions-of-smart-tvs/ DRONES+TV's with internet connections = printers spewing coupons? Ok, but they missed a small little detail that I'm sure can be worked out or around but think about the power needed to transmit a signal strong enough to swamp the TV front end to over come the original signal to replace it with the pseudo signal, not impossible but it's not easy easy either. That much sophistication and all for as little as $200 dollars? They are very optimistic to say the least, and a drone for anonymity, yeah I suppose? But a rooftop (like the one in the video) can be a great place to put an antenna for 5 or ten minutes and wow, no flying required... (duh). (note to self) - when you buy that sexy new-fangled uber expensive TV, remember to turn the "smart" features off. Just say thanks, but no thanks. I don;t know about you but I like watching my TV programs WITHOUT the extra attachments. What are your thoughts? - KD6W Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
