  1. We’re very sorry to have to bring you this news, but upgrading Kodi to the latest version (released today) is fairly urgent if you wish to keep your network secure. Earlier today, a security flaw within Kodi (and other media players including VLC) was reported by researchers from Check Point Software Technologies. They demonstrated that an attacker could gain control of any Kodi device through the use of malicious code placed within subtitles. Hypothetically, if an infected subtitle file were to be downloaded by Kodi, it could give a hacker full control over your device. This is particularly concerning when it comes to automatically downloaded subtitles. It is very important that you upgrade Kodi as soon as possible, otherwise you could be leaving your entire computer, device, or even home network at risk. Security flaws in software happens all the time, it’s normal. This security flaw also affected many other media players that are far more popular than Kodi. The important thing is that the issue was fixed quickly, and so far no damage has been reported. However, now that the security flaw has reached mainstream news, hackers will now likely be looking to exploit it far more aggressively. The official developers of Kodi have been working tirelessly to release an updated version of Kodi that would fix security flaw, as well as some other minor bugs. Team-Kodi “highly encourages” all users to install this latest version, as do we. If you’re still running Kodi 16.1 Jarvis or below, you might as well upgrade now, that way you’ll also gain access to all the streams that use newer HTTPS technology not supported in older versions of Kodi anyway. If you follow the instructions below carefully, upgrading should be super easy. Please note that these instructions describe the unofficial use of the Kodi media center. Before Proceeding Android Users: Those of you who are running older devices or cheap Android boxes might run into some trouble. Kodi 17.3 Krypton requires Android 5.0 or higher to run. If your device doesn’t support Android 5.0, you’ll need to buy a new Android TV box in order to continue to enjoy Kodi. Apple TV 2 Users: Even though the last two versions of Kodi didn’t support the Apple TV 2, the device still seemed to work alright. This will no longer be the case moving forward, without HTTPS or HD support it’ll be next to useless, it’s time to purchase a new Android TV box. United Kingdom Users: It will be necessary to disable certain router security settingsbefore continuing, we’d also highly recommend using a VPN Provider to circumvent site blocking. Thank You 🙂 And Have A Great Day. The Mixdoctor Team Member of koditalk.org

  3. Popular apps with 18 million combined downloads in the App Store found vulnerable to silent data interception After scanning through the binary codes of applications in the iOS App Store, Will Strafach’s verify.lyservice has detected that 76 popular apps in the store are currently vulnerable to data interception. The interception is possible regardless if App Store developers are using App Transport Security or not. A few months ago, similar vulnerabilities were discovered with Experian and myFICO Mobile’s iOS apps. Strafach’s verify.ly service is dedicated to scanning apps in the iOS App Store searching for vulnerabilities to help developers understand how to harden and secure their code. The scans look for patterns in vulnerabilities and in more terrifying examples they’ll find them repeated throughout multiple applications. Today’s announcement is not only scary because the applications are so commonly used, but also because more than 18,000,000 downloads of the vulnerable app builds have been downloaded. In the report, Strafach has sorted the 76 apps into low, medium, and high risk categories. “The App Transport Security feature of iOS does not and cannot help block this vulnerability from working”, states Strafach. ATS, introduced in iOS 9 was set to help improve user security and privacy by pushing apps to use HTTPS. Apple originally set a date of January 1st, 2017 for all apps to have the feature configured but has since pushed it back to an undetermined date. The issue relies in misconfigured networking code that causes Apple’s App Transport Security to see the connections as valid TLS connections, even if they’re not. Some of the apps with low risk distinctions include: ooVoo, ViaVideo, Snap Upload for Snapchat, Uploader Free for Snapchat, and Cheetah Browser. Unsurprisingly a handful of the apps are Snapchat-centric applications, something Strafach discussed as being insecure last March. As far as the medium and high risk applications go, Strafach is holding off on sharing that list until he’s properly communicated the issues with the appropriate developers and companies of the applications. In the meantime, users can do a few things to help protect against these issues. A properly configured VPN could help mitigate against this issue, something we mentioned that Apple should implement on iOS natively. If user’s decide against using a VPN on their devices, Strafach recommends users turning off their Wi-Fi instead. Head over to Strafach’s post for the full and more technical breakdown.
