VLC, Kodi, Popcorn Time and Stremio Malware Attack

Postby jemma213GH » Thu, 28 Sep 2017, 18:21

Hey guys while searching for some movie streaming apps i found this.

VLC, Kodi, Popcorn Time and Stremio vulnerable to malware fired from booby-trapped subtitles

By crafting malicious subtitle files for films and TV programmes, which are then downloaded by viewers, attackers can hope to take complete control of any device running the vulnerable platforms. Hackers have pushed trojans under the guise of subtitle files as far back as 2003.
