Samsung's Tizen OS Riddled With Security Holes
5 April 2017, 1:00 am



There are more than three dozen previously unknown flaws that pose a potential threat to consumers using some Samsung TVs, watches and phones, a security researcher has reported. Hackers could exploit the vulnerabilities found in Samsung's Tizen OS to gain remote access and control of a variety of the company's products, according to Amihai Neiderman, head of research at Equus Software. Neiderman presented his findings at a security conference sponsored by Kapersky Lab. Tizen is running on some 30 million smart TVs and other devices.
