Today I discovered the free Bitdefender Home Scanner security product, installed it and ran a security scan for my home network.
My impression is that everybody should use this very nice free security monitor from Bitdefender. You’d be silly/careless not to!
The scanner reported the device named "HyBroad Vision (Hong Kong) Technology Co Ltd" has two high-risk vulnerabilities:
- Denial of Service (DoS) .... HIGH
- Arbitrary code execution .... HIGH
See screenshots (1) and (2) below:
I was puzzled by the device reported as “HyBroad Vision (Hong Kong) Technology Co Ltd” and wondered what it could be.
A quick Web search informed me that this network device in fact it is the Optus Fetch TV set top box -- which is installed with no special configuration settings -- all the Optus default. (For overseas readers of this blog, Optus is one the main telcos in Australia.)
Does anybody know how these two high-risk vulnerabilities can be eliminated for this device?
What Fetch TV STB configuration options are there to accomplish this?
