What is Kodi?

Kodi is a free and open-source media streaming application software which provides so many entertainments such as Movies, TV Shows, Sports, Music, and much more. Now-a-days, Kodi has become very popular among the users. It supports all types of operating systems such as Windows, Mac, Linus, etc.

If you are using the Kodi app, please be aware of your Kodi repositories. You may know already, in the year 2017 was not a kind one for many long-standing best Kodi repos. Because of the dozens of these repositories are completely vanished and can never come back. But how did this problem occurs in the first place?

As a result of the disappearance of Kodi repositories will start an attack particularly on the TV Addons. During that time the company was under fire and was subject to two devastating case from two different countries. These cases would create a huge problem in the tech industry. Finally, many software developers and other repository operators can abandon their projects out of fear of being the next person in that problem.

Because so many software developers had left their current projects, dedicated users were not able to keep up with what actually works and what doesn’t work. As a result, it becomes a very big issue for long-term Kodi users and not knowing which repository to use could become a security nightmare.

As Kodi grows in popularity among the people cutting the cord on cable, there are so many privacy and security issues that should be considered. On the below section, you will find two scenarios that could become the real-world issues for those using Kodi repositories.

Two Real-World Security Concerns

A Honeypot Sting

At the time of a honeypot sting a repository could be used to offer so many premium contents for free of cost. But in fact, a tracker can be used to record all of your IP address and then it will be reported to the actual rights holder. A Honeypot Sting is mostly widely used by only the copyright holders.

Hackers Purchase the Domain

The second security concern is when a hacker, or group of hackers, purchases a domain of a depreciated repository and uses an installation that is currently active to insert malware into your machine.
