Be careful with your Smart TV

And your smartphone, fitness tracker, smartwatch, tablet, laptop PC, desktop PC with microphone and webcam, Alexa, Google Home, Amazon Echo, Sonos speaker, smart thermostat, smart refrigerator and other smart appliances, security webcam, smart childeren's toys, smart sex toys, internet radio, ...

Just about anything with a processor can be hacked. Anything with a camera, a microphone, a speaker (potentially) or any other sensing device can be used for personal spying.
