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.
