Samsung Smart TV 's and perhaps DVR's and Malware/Viruses

Read tonight of tweet from Samsung for smart devices being susceptible to malware or viruses, and how to correct I've been running the updates on mine, and just setup my scans for one more bit of joy.

Have included video of setup (if you haven't done) for Smart TV's.

DVR's or DVD Players are questionable i if your using Smart ones to make your Dumb TV smart you might like to check through your menus.

 

I'm checking my DVD Player tonite.

Conside it the joy of IOT ( Internet of Things) devices, can't wait for malware on my Fridge to start   ;-} not!

 

It's not network connected, and quite dumb.

And yes, after long days/nights, I'd still like to swing these hunks of glass , plastic and silicon against the nearest wall Come on retirement!
