Android devices can execute powerful attacks and leverage vulnerabilities within the Internet of Things (IoT) in ways similar to personal computers. Attacks on the Android platform against mobile devices is an area well explored by numerous researchers.Devices powered by Android that are not mobile in nature do not share many of the attack vectors found in prior studies, and the limitations of these devices had not been explored. We first examine the means with which one can exploit a TV box device that is connected within the IoT, and what gaining access to such a device means. We demonstrate the security severity of the Android TV box brought to home networks with case studies. We also show that these proposed attacks cannot be detected by current antivirus applications. Furthermore, we propose an effective multi-line defense approach to secure our home networks against these attacks.
