Exploit attacks your smart TV through over-the-air signals

If there’s a saving grace, it’s the specificity of the attack. Only some countries use DVB-T, and fewer still support the hybrid broadcast broadband TV format (HbbTV) needed to make this work. The victim also needs to both be tuned into a DVB-T channel and have the TV connected to the internet. North Americans watching ATSC broadcasts have nothing to worry about right now, in other words, and you’re also safe if you use a game console or media hub for your living room entertainment. – Jon Fingas, Engadget http://engt.co/2nMyw3U
