Posted October 04, 2018 12:04:08Dish Network’s login is insecure and doesn’t use the latest encryption technologies, according to a report from the cybersecurity firm McAfee.
The report comes on the heels of a security flaw disclosed in December 2016 that compromised access to millions of Dish Network devices and websites.
In its report, McAfee said the login and password credentials of the Dish network are not encrypted and they may be exposed to “malicious actors” with the aim of compromising information.
The company said Dish was working on fixing the security breach.
The Dish network has been the subject of some of the biggest security scares of 2017, including the discovery of the Whisper botnet which was capable of spreading malware and compromising sensitive data, including customer login credentials.
A month later, a researcher named Kory Stamper found a series of security holes in the Dish Network’s email and chat software.
In December, Dish Network said the malware was being used to steal customers’ passwords and credentials.
McAfee has since released a list of the security holes found by Stamper.
