Samsung Accidentally Makes the Case for Not Owning a Smart TV ➝

Jon Porter, writing for The Verge:

Samsung has reminded owners of its smart TVs that they should be regularly scanning for malware using its built-in virus scanning software. “Prevent malicious software attacks on your TV by scanning for viruses on your TV every few weeks,” a (now deleted) tweet from the company’s US support account read alongside a video attachment that demonstrated the laborious process.

It’s amazing to me that this was ever tweeted at all. Imagine if Microsoft was marketing their operating system by sharing tips on how to use malware or virus scanners on Windows. It’s not a good look.
