Security alert over Samsung's Smart TV as hackers claim they can access its hard drive and seize control of built-in cameras

Security experts reveal they have been able to gain access to the device and scour its hard drives and connected drives for information

They claim to have 'complete root access' allowing them to install malicious software that could monitor its cameras and microphones

More and more devices that connect to the Internet are leaving unwitting consumers vulnerable to such hacking attacks

Several years ago I told some people just wait they'll be watching you or listening to your conversation through your TV and they thought I was an idiot or conspiracy theorist.

I don't know if my TV is watching me (it's a dumb TV with no camera or mics so not likely), but I'm paranoid enough to keep the web cam on my laptop and desktop covered up with black tape when I'm not Skypeing.
