Forget Game of Thrones as Android ransomware infects TVs

Re: Aahh!

Modern TVs come with a 5 year guarantee as standard, in keeping with our statuary right to have it last a 'reasonable' time.

5 years is no where near any sort of "reasonable time". 10 years, sure. 15? Yup. 20? Definitely. Are people really so stupid that their being "nickled and dimed" is now at the level of hundreds or thousands of $$$?

What I really want to know is "How is the user going to fix this problem when they don't even have a PC any more?" In their grand ignorance and desire for total convenience, they've all switched to those so-called smart phone things which are very likely to be vulnerable to this infectious mess. Can you hear the Luddites laughing?
