Anti-virus software for Smart TV

    Question

  • Hi everybody

    Recently I have bought myself a Smart TV which can access the Internet.  Can a virus infect this TV of mine?  I hope that this is just a silly question.

    Best regards

    It may not be a silly question, but it certainly is
    off-topic in this forum. It clearly has nothing to
    do with the Visual C++ product, nor with the C++
    programming language, which are the topics discussed
    here. You should post such questions in a forum or
    newsgroup dedicated to security and virus issues.

    Do you have an antivirus application installed?
    If so, most have support forums. Try there first.

    Example:

    Kaspersky Lab Forum->English User Forum->Virus-related issues
    http://forum.kaspersky.com/index.php?s=35ec61ee36a7e4f2ac0c24dd042db469&showforum=19

    Or look for a Usenet group. I'm sure you know
    how to do a web search,
