Millions of Kodi pirates could be unwittingly 'spreading child porn and malware'

Pirate library TVAddons appealed to streaming fans to change default passwords.

Millions of Kodi streamers who use jailbroken Apple TV 2 devices to watch content are at risk of hacking attacks due to a "huge security flaw", according to pirate library TVAddons.

Cracked Apple TV 2 devices have long been favoured by Kodi pirates, but a popular update comes installed with unwanted tools and a default password which users are unlikely to change.

In recent years, the availability of cheap Android-based hardware – often branded as "Kodi boxes" – has enabled users to stream subscription-only material.

A quick Google search shows that jailbreaking guides for Apple TV 2 devices are still popular. Some online marketplaces, including eBay, have cracked boxes openly advertised for sale.
