IPTV Viruses and Malwares

We think most of our readers—intentionally or otherwise—have probably stumbled onto a site offering illegal free live TV at some point in their lives.

 

If you have been on such a site, you’ll know that developers load the sites with very aggressive ads. Remember, these aren’t ads from Google Ads or another similarly reputable ad network. Many of the ads are providing links to some form of malware.

 

Worse still, the ads are deliberately highly deceiving. Downloadable items are disguised as Play buttons and close window icons, windows move around the page, and ads are layered on top of each other. And if you turn on an ad blocker the sites will not let you access the content.

Often, you need to close several ads before you can get close to watching a video. One wrong click, and you could inadvertently let malware access your device.

The problem isn’t only limited to websites. Countless services have followed in PopcornTime’s footsteps, offering on-the-fly streaming of P2P content. Many such services have apps for platforms like Android TV and Fire TV. Because they’re not on official stores, the apps aren’t going through any rigorous security checks.

 

Use them at your own risk.
