Re: Plex huge security flaw

According to the article someone has to fall for a fake email. I've never received such an email, so I wonder how they identified a Plex user? Anyway, I keep mine updated, and they apparently had it patched well before it became public knowledge. Of course, I haven't even used Plex since March, as that was the last time I've traveled anywhere. I only use it when I'm at a hotel and want to watch something from my media collection. I really do need to take my Roku player out of my suitcase and update it. Poor thing has been ignored for months. :lol:

Samsung NU7100 4K TV, Samsung JU7100 4K TV, Sony BDP-S3500, Sharp 4K Roku TV, Insignia Roku TV, Roku Ultra, Premiere and Stick, Nvidia Shield, Yamaha RX-V583 AVR.
Primary server: Intel i5-6400, 8 gig ram, Windows 10 Pro, 22 TB hard drive space | Test server Windows 10 Pro, AMD Phenom II X4 965, 8 gig ram

HOWTO: Enable debug logging HOWTO: Identify media file contents
