Fact: I own a Samsung Smart TV

It's over there in the corner of the room, right now. It's also off...I think.

This an excerpt from today's Wikileaks release cover note:

"The attack against Samsung smart TVs was developed in cooperation with the United Kingdom's MI5/BTSS. After infestation, Weeping Angel places the target TV in a 'Fake-Off' mode, so that the owner falsely believes the TV is off when it is on. In 'Fake-Off' mode the TV operates as a bug, recording conversations in the room and sending them over the Internet to a covert CIA server."

Whole thing here and very interesting stuff it is, too.
