    Default Dreambox password


    A suggestion to all dreambox users that you change your password away from the default that is set up in your box by the manufacturers. With the default password people other than yourself can remotly access you dreambox over the net. Any of the IP's that are tied up with pay tv providers only need to ping your internet line with the default name and password and all those who havn't changed their passwords will then be opened. They will then know who is in the cardsharing networks and with some of their computer geeks will be able to track back to the server. So everyone be aware, change your password to protect yourselves and your friends and providers.

    thnx for the info wazza,
    general question to members,,,
    if someone was using that kind of service,,,would they have to alter the config files after changing the username /password info?or would that need to be done at both ends of the "service"?
    does the key update rely on the provider knowing the password etc?
    would a routers access list preferences or firewall settings be able to screen such "ping" attacks?
    cheers,,,dave

    I think wazza means the Dreambox's user and password (by default root/dreambox)
    Are you speaking from experience wazza? Did you or someone you know have anyone break into your box and you/he found out?
    Not questioning the validity of your suggestion just like to know if anything has happened to anyone.

    Yes. Server holders should take special care about this. Though it applies to clients also!
