Introduction

I recently read a blog, posted by DoctorBeet, in reference to his LG TV sending channel viewing and file tracking information to a remote site. The article is quite informative, and if you own a LG SmartTV, I highly recommend reading it before you continue with this article. The original blog can be found here:

I decided to investigate how far LG had gone to gather tracking information, even though I do not own an LG TV myself. I was, however, able to glean some additional details using the information provided in DoctorBeet's article.
