Since the article is very light on details there is no way to be sure, but I assume the attack vector came in through the web browser. I honestly can't imagine this TV having open ports to be directly attacked from the outside. Why would it need these? On top of this I also would suspect the LAN to have a firewall that should also be blocking any ports left open on the TV for whatever reason.

A bushel is a bushel, a head is a head, a pound is a pound, and a gigabyte is a gigabyte.

Except when it's a gibibyte. Chances are his router uses 1024 bytes per KB, and AT&T are using 1000 bytes per KB.

No wonder it is proprietary information.

Except by my math, this only accounts for a 2.4% difference.
