Samsung has confirmed it may have hacked into its washing machine.
The US-based company said it had discovered the problem during its maintenance programme and was investigating how it had been discovered.
“Our first priority is to provide a service to our customers, which we have done since late May. “
“As we are investigating the issue, we have taken action to prevent any further loss of data and are in contact with the affected customer.” “
The washing machine was not linked to any personal information or other personal data that could be shared with any third parties, Samsung said. “

The problem was first reported on Thursday by the BBC’s news website, the BBC News website.
The BBC said it received information from Samsung that the problem had been fixed on Monday.
“A spokesperson for Samsung told the BBC that the washing machine that had been reported was a refurbished model of the washing machines that Samsung has sold to the public,” it said.
“It was not related to the Samsung washing machines already sold to customers.”
Samsung has a reputation for reliability and has been praised for its efforts to fix the problems caused by its other products.
The company has also faced criticism from security experts over its handling of data breaches in recent years.
Earlier this month, Samsung told US media that it would refund customers the money they paid for a refurbisher that had previously been sold to it.
In a statement on Friday, Samsung confirmed the incident and said it would be working with customers who have been affected.
“We have already refunded customers for their losses and we will be working closely with them on the issue,” the statement said. (Reuters)
