We’ve been here before, and I am sure we will revisit this topic more often in the new year.  Ransomware.  You knew it could affect your PC.  And we knew it could get on your smartphone…especially if you are partial to downloading those silly flashlight apps to turn on and wave at football games.  But now, it has come to smart TV’s.  And the cost to attempt to regain control of your smart TV is probably more than the cost of the unit itself.

So read the article, and please be aware.  And if you have any comments you want to share on this topic, please share it in the comments area below.  I am SURE folks would LOVE to hear opinions other than mine!!  I know I would!!
