One of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 main characteristics of Smart TVs are apps. Apps extend cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Smart TV behavior with various functionalities, ranging from usage of social networks or payed streaming services, to buying articles on Ebay. These actions demand usage of critical data like aucá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ntication tokens and passwords, and thus raise a question on new attack scenarios and general security of Smart TV apps.

These reasons make it interesting enough to do some research on smart TVs. We wrote a paper with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 title "Not so Smart: On Smart TV Apps", which will be presented in a few days at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 "International Workshop on Secure Internet of Things" (SIoT 2015). In this paper, we investigate attack models for Smart TVs and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir apps, and systematically analyze security of Smart TV devices. We point out that some popular apps, including Facebook, Ebay or Watchever, send login data over unencrypted channels. Even worse, we show that an arbitrary app installed on devices of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 market share leader Samsung can gain access to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 credentials of a Samsung Single Sign-On account. Therefore, such an app can hijack a complete user account including all his devices like smartphones and tablets connected with it. Based on our findings, we provide recommendations that are of general importance and applicable to areas beyond Smart TVs.
