Komando: If you have satellite TV, hackers have access to your network

Komando: If you have satellite TV, hackers have access to your network. “If you are one of the millions of people with AT&T’s DirecTV service, you could be at risk of attack by hackers. That’s due to a vulnerability recently discovered by security researcher Ricky Lawshae. He said the flaw was found in DirecTV’s Genie digital video recorder (DVR) system. More specifically, Linksys WVBRo-25 model. The vulnerability is located in the wireless video bridge that lets DirecTV devices communicate with the DVR.”
