LG Smart TVs logging USB filenames and viewing info to LG servers

This information appears to be sent back unencrypted and in the clear to LG every time you change channel, even if you have gone to the trouble of changing the setting above to switch collection of viewing information off.It was at this point, I made an even more disturbing find within the packet data dumps. I noticed filenames were being posted to LG\’s servers and that these filenames were ones stored on my external USB hard drive. To demonstrate this, I created a mock avi file and copied it to a USB stick.
