Sony tv guide not updating

The first allowed an attacker to crash the app; the second allowed an attacker to browse every file on the TV.

The third, however, was the most threatening, as it let an attacker execute remote code with root privileges — in other words, to completely take over your smart TV and possibly draft it into a botnet or force it to mine cryptocurrency.

In the summer of 2011, we upgraded to a Sony Bravia HDTV.

We spent a lot of time researching this purchase, because we wanted a TV with built-in streaming video features like You Tube, Amazon Streaming Video, Hulu, Netflix, Crackle and more.

The easiest way to compromise a TV in this manner would be to draft it into a botnet, although you could theoretically mine cryptocurrency on a TV.

(TVs have fairly robust GPUs, although the processing power and storage pale in comparison to even a half-decent computer.)With root access to the TV, you could also theoretically compromise other network devices, like a router or a computer.

In other words: Apply the patch, and don't sweat it too much.
