    Windows 8 Security Compromised?

    ok guys ran into an interesting situation that i believe maybe some kind of hole in security
    i was watching a show on netflix on my Xbox when all of a sudden a cursor appeared on screen moved around a bit, went to one of the options then went away and nothing was noticed again.
    the only time i have seen a cursor like that is the one included with the new dashboard version of IE10,
    however i feel this maybe some kind of issue with Win 8 and Xbox Smart Glass.
    has their been any info on security threats in Win 8 yet?

    I don't understand. Were you using Windows 8 or your XBox? You said one and then the other. If you're using Windows 8, why would you be watching netflix on your xbox when Windows 8 has a netflix player?
