    Security Breach? SEI Robotics TV SEI400TV

    It seems someone might have gotten into my network via my new TiVo Stream 4K device.
    Even google flags the device as a RISK.
    Android TV Guide - SEI Robotics

    Headquarters - Shenzhen, China

    Could this be a back door attack like Chinese's company Huawei company does on android phones?

    Someone deleted my Google Home group from the android TV. I'm remove access, factory resetting the device and getting rid of it. Something bad is going on with it's security. Took hours to setup my network after it was compromised.

    Anything and everything is susceptible to hacking thats connected to the internet, as I'm sure that goes without saying.

    That being said, considering this being the first I've seen anyone make this case and the lack of attention this post as gotten, it does appear to have been an isolated incident and not so much of a conspiracy, as most believe Xiaomi to be.

    A wise dev I know often makes the case to always disable adb after any and every use. If it's left on, you are vulnerable. Hackers can use the same access to that device and your network as you did to modify it. On the TS4K, its currently labeled USB Debugging in developers options.

    Finally, have you considered your browsing habits to have been any contribution to such an attack?

    It is a bit questionable why a device from a major company like Tivo is accessing your Google account as an unverified developer (which is not even Tivo). They really need to get that fixed. It does not look good in this day and age of security. I would like to see Tivo spend a bit more development time making this device their own rather than just sticking an app on top of an off the shelf board.

    I turned my usb debugging to 'on' when I was tweaking my device, should I turn it back off? and will it mess with my wolf launcher app?

    Wait till they get to your saved passwords in Chrome (which is really Google -the Chinese in disguise).

    I forget that some people still save their passwords in the browser instead of using something like Bitwarden.
