BEWARE: Chinese Hackers Have Been Using VLC Media Player to Spread Malware

Should I delete the VLC players I use on my Firesticks?

Is it a danger if its on a Firesticj/Cube and not a PC?


This is why you get vlc and other apps from verified sources. It would have to be a modded vlc app for this to happen or along those lines.

Cant stees this enough: watch for modded apks or unverified sources.

All the VLC players I have now came through the Troypoint Rapid App Installer. I am not going to add a video player that pops up when looking at online content.



Then you shouldnt have to worry, just dont open malicious stuff in vlc.

Use it for movie and tv show streams.
