Can someone hack a blu-ray player??

I heard blu-ray players can connect to internet.

Can some hackers hack a blu-ray player from the internet and show something bad on my TV?

Anything connected to the internet can be hacked.
That said unless it's someone you know wanting to get back at you or play a joke on you it's like 10 milllion to 1 chance that someone would hit your connection and want to see what it leads to.

Have a nice day

Re: Can someone hack a blu-ray player??

As soon as you load a BD-Live disc, it opens a port to the net and keeps it open. So in theory it could create a security issue for everything that's on your network. That's in theory. I don't think anyone has yet done any real research into these things.
