LG fixes worrying security vulnerabilities on some smart TVs – check if your model is among them

If your LG TV is running webOS versions 4 to 7, you might have heard the recent report that it was vulnerable to a serious hack. Bitdefender raised concerns yesterday (April 9) that the vulnerability – which affects LG TVs and its commercial signage monitors too – enabled hackers to gain root access to the operating system, effectively giving them full and unlimited access to the TV or monitor. 

Thankfully, LG has now confirmed that the security vulnerabilities have been patched in a recent update. The TV maker told TechRadar that “LG was aware of the issue, and all necessary patches have now been completed. We can confirm LG smart TVs are safe and security is our highest priority. Customers are advised to enable automatic software updates”.
