Hackers Will Target Smart TVs, Cybersecurity Firm Says

Hackers are opening new horizons: having learned how to break into Apple Inc.’s iPhones they may target smart televisions next, according to cybersecurity firm Kaspersky Lab. In the future, hackers will be able to interfere with smart TVs -- the latest generation of TVs that are connected to the Internet -- and require users to send a paid text message to get them unlocked, Chief Executive Officer Eugene Kaspersky said in an interview.
