Security consultant Rafael Scheel of Oneconsult AG  demonstrated the attack by using a cheap transmitter to embed malicious commands into a rogue TV signal. When that signal is broadcast to devices in the vicinity, it can gain access to the televisions. What can cause the attack is the exploitation of two documented security flaws in the Web browsers that run in the background of the TV models used in the test, both manufactured by Samsung. This can work on other TV sets as well. Once a hacker has control over theSmart TV, the TV could be used to attack further devices in the home network or to spy on the user with the TV’s camera and microphone
