Submission + - Researcher causes Endless Restart Loop on Samsung TVs->

Gunkerty Jeb writes: Italian security researcher Luigi Auriemma was trying to play a trick on his brother when he accidentally discovered two vulnerabilities in all current versions of Samsung TVs and Blu-Ray systems that could allow an attacker to gain remote access to those devices.

Auriemma claims that the vulnerabilities will affect all Samsung devices with support for remote controllers, and that the vulnerable protocol is on both TVs and Blu-Ray enabled devices.

One of the bugs leads to a loop of endless restarts while the other could cause a potential buffer overflow.

Real Programs don't use shared text. Otherwise, how can they use functions for scratch space after they are finished calling them?
