+ - Researcher causes Endless Restart Loop on Samsung TVs->

Submitted by Gunkerty Jeb
Gunkerty Jeb (1950964) writes "Italian security researcher Luigi Auriemma was trying to play a trick on his brother when he accidentally discovered two vulnerabilities in all current versions of Samsung TVs and Blu-Ray systems that could allow an attacker to gain remote access to those devices.

Auriemma claims that the vulnerabilities will affect all Samsung devices with support for remote controllers, and that the vulnerable protocol is on both TVs and Blu-Ray enabled devices.

One of the bugs leads to a loop of endless restarts while the other could cause a potential buffer overflow."
