Samsung Advises Smart TV Owners to Periodically Check for Viruses

Samsung, in a now-deleted tweet:

Scanning your computer for malware viruses is important to keep it running smoothly. This also is true for your QLED TV if it’s connected to Wi-Fi!

Prevent malicious software attacks on your TV by scanning for viruses on your TV every few weeks. Here’s how.

Television sets infected with malicious software sounds like something straight out of 1980s dystopic sci-fi.

Makes me wonder how much debate there was within Apple about partnering with Samsung to put iTunes on these things.
