Starview the box not updating
Today I’m just back from a great Christmas break and eager to get moving on bringing 2bscene (and other projects) to another level this year. It’s all too easy to get bogged down in work and lie in the trenches when you’re busy, but the break helps rejuvenate your brain and start thinking of how to improve things to give an even better level of service.After sifting through hundreds of emails though, one email caught my eye from a guy calling himself Daithi Boyce.Additionally, with it came a USB stick, branded with The Box logo which can be inserted into the newly added USB port of The Box for backing up channel data and of course doing firmware updates.The firmware update is a million times easier than the laborious R232 cable scenario.So you can continue with your one man crusade in taking down my website, I do however have your ip address, email address and your name if such an unlikely event takes place…. UPC (Formerly NTL) have finally launched their new encryption to prevent illegal access to their service.Forums are buzzing with discussions on the latest move by UPC to once and for all eradicate the pirates who use their service for free with the so called “Dodgy Boxes”.I’m sure that once NTL start noticing this trend, they will start to think of providing a better, cheaper service. If you look at the statistics of this site – most people find this site looking for ways to hack eircom’s routers – not to prevent themselves from being hacked.
If I worked for UPC, I would so far count this as a huge success as users of the forums seem to have given up any hope of there ever being a fix. But I imagine a lot of people will begin to change over to Sky now as it’s a much better offering!
It’s completely wrong for an unsuspecting person to have to pay for someone who logs on to their network uninvited and racks up a bill for that person because they didn’t know they were susceptible to this hack.
