DoctorLaptop Alert for IPTV and KODI box users: Poisoned Updates Blocking IPTV Access? Infomir, the manufacturer of the popular MAG range of set-top boxes, says it will block the portals of suspected copyright-infringing IPTV providers following complaints from copyright holders. While MAG devices are used to access plenty of legal services, the news will come as a blow to large numbers of customers who use the devices to access unauthorized platforms (UKTV, live sports and movies being very commonly pirated). Infomir appears able to prevent certain portal URLs from being accessed via its set-top devices and there are some unconfirmed reports online which indicate this may be happening already. It’s not entirely clear how MAG devices are prevented from accessing portal URLs and Infomir informs TF that it won’t provide that information as it might “downgrade” its “access restriction system”. There is already some speculation on specialist forums that firmware updates may be responsible but no clear confirmation is currently available. Some IPTV pros are suggesting MAG box users refrain from any updates to the box firmware until more is known.
