Kodi Krypton 17.2: Emergency Update

We are here to announce to everyone that Kodi 17.2 is here to download and you should do the update ASAP. The update has come about with a quick ETA due to a major security flaw within Kodi and (other media players like VLC etc). Hackers are able to gain access to devices through malicious code placed in your subtitles, allowing the user to take full control of over any device that you have these apps installed on.

Android boxes, Smartphones, CPUS, & home networks are all at risk. Due to this virus becoming widespread on the mainstream level, hackers have begun to ramp up their attempts in infecting hardware before customers update their devices.

While in this day and age, hacks happen on a regular basis, it is equally important for app developers to quickly make security patches to keep our devices safe. Kodi has taken this threat seriously and is pleading with everyone to update to the latest version.

However, bad news for anybody that is running a device below android version 5.0, as you will not be able to install this new update. This is also a perfect time to upgrade your device, as the software on your box is extremely outdated.
