Stream All The Soutces SALT Addon has been updated with more options.
The main difference between Stream All The Sources and Genesis is that SALTs grabs its metadata from Trakt, while Genesis uses IMDB. Other than that, both are used as an interface to TV show and movies. Many of the same HD sources appear in both add-ons!
Stream All The Sources works best with the Trakt add-on, which allows you to track your favorite shows and movies and what you’ve watched. Sync your Trakt account with your Trakt add-on in Kodi and to the Trakt settings in SALTs to take advantage of all features.
The new Stream All The Sources 1.0.59 update fixes and adds numerous scrapers. If you are unfamiliar, a scraper is a script that runs in the background of SALTs that allows it to interface with various streaming sites on the internet. It uses these scrapers to pull content and links for every TV show and movie into the Stream All The Sources 1.0.59 add-on. Streaming sites are constantly tweaking their back-end, which requires updates to the scrapers in order for them to work correctly.
SALTs 1.0.59 Change Log

Home media player software Kodi (formerly known as XBMC) has been found vulnerable to man-in-the-middle attacks that may jeopardize the security of home users, according to Bitdefender research.
Kodi is mostly used by those who want to build their own home media centers without investing in dedicated hardware or software. This open-source solution is compatible with a wide range of operating systems (Linux, OS X, Windows, iOS, and Android), and it’s the preferred choice for many enthusiasts.
Although Team Kodi, a group of volunteers located around the world, have successfully developed and maintained the software for years, we have analyzed Kodi from a security point of view and identified several attack scenarios based on man-in-the-middle attacks.
Team Kodi has been notified about the vulnerabilities found and they’re working on issuing patches. No time of release has been estimated.
Kodi features a set of add-ons that allows users to access popular services such as YouTube, Dropbox, Grooveshark, etc. Every time Kodi is launched, it automatically checks if installed add-ons have updates. When a new add-on version is found, it is automatically downloaded and installed. A pop-up notifies users that the add-on has been updated.
The add-on update check and communication is handled entirely over HTTP, with no encryption. Here’s the update process, step by step:
1. The software asks the md5 hash for the latest “addons.xml” file, containing information about add-ons, including their latest version numbers;
2. If the md5 of the latest “addons.xml” file is different than the one stored locally by Kodi, it requests the actual file;
3. The local versions of the installed add-ons are compared against the ones in the latest “addons.xml” file;
4. If a new version is available for an add-on, a request is made for the md5 of the latest add-on package;
5. The new add-on is downloaded, which consists of a zip archive containing Python modules and configuration xml files;
6. An md5 hash is obtained from the downloaded zip file and compared against the md5 received previously. If they match, the add-on is installed.
Because of the lack of encryption and authentication during the above process, an attacker who intercepts the network traffic can modify add-ons to execute code on the system Kodi is installed on. Specifically, when the request for the latest “addons.xml” md5 file is made, the attacker will send a random md5.
This doesn’t need to be the exact md5 hash for the file that will be sent, as it seems this is not verified. Afterwards, the attacker sends a crafted “addons.xml” file containing a higher version of a specific add-on he’s targeting. In the end, he will have to send the correct md5 hash for his add-on package and the actual zip archive with the malicious add-on. Once the add-on is installed, the attacker’s malicious Python code is executed.
On Windows, an attacker will have the same privileges as the user under which Kodi is running. We were able to download the executable and place it in the startup directory under the user with these privileges.
On OpenElec, (a Raspberry Pi Linux distribution with Kodi installed), we focused on retrieving sensitive user data. To this end, we modified the YouTube add-on to retrieve user credentials.
The official add-on uses the OAuth2 authentication method, meaning that no username or password need be entered into the add-on itself. We added a fake dialog to the add-on we sent – displayed at startup – asking the user to sign in with his YouTube credentials. The obtained credentials were sent to a remote site using a GET HTTP request.
Interestingly, although the legitimate YouTube add-on uses HTTPS for authentication, it doesn’t check if the certificate used for the communication is actually trusted. This can easily be observed when analyzing the add-ons code, as certificate validation is disabled.
All calls are made with “Verify=False”, meaning no certificate validation is triggered.
An attacker who intercepts network traffic can obtain the refresh token used for authenticating a device and, along with the client secret ID, which is hardcoded into the add-on, he can access content, such as private videos, from the user’s channel. This can be achieved without modifying any add-on – by only sniffing traffic. Because Kodi has its own Python package (the analyzed version has v2.7.8), other add-ons that don’t explicitly check the validity of the SSL certificate and rely only on checks made by utllib2 could be susceptible to this type of attack.
We have also modified the Dropbox add-on (Dbmc) so that each time the add-on is launched or it syncs files, it uploads all content from the local Dropbox directory to an FTP server of our choice. By default, the Dropbox add-on syncs only media files but, because the code can be modified, it can be forced to download all available files from the Dropbox account.
The problems described here rely on the lack of encryption and authentication when updating add-ons and not in the actual add-ons themselves. The lack of certificate validation in the YouTube add-on is an entirely different problem.
Our research has shown that not only a man-in-the-middle attack would be successful, but also that it doesn’t take impressive skills to pull it off. Implementing a secure communication channel for any application that connects through the internet to any server or marketplace should become a standard. Otherwise, any information passed back and forward could easily be tampered with by anyone eavesdropping.
The implications of the lack of encryption or strong authentication methods could potentially involve a complete takeover of the targeted machine or the loss of critical and sensitive user data (e.g. passwords, files).

Apple TV 2 has been Officially Dropped by Kodi. The workhorse that it was has now come to a dead end. The makers of xbmc/kodi explain that the hardware is very old and how they had stopped making fixes back when Frodo was released. The Apple TV 2 was an awesome box and it is understandable why it was dropped, since their is no Jailbreak for the Apple TV 3. Here is what Kodi.TV had to say:
As the current maintainer of the AppleTV2 platform for Kodi, I wanted you to know that I have decided to stop official support for it. I know that the fact that XBMC/Kodi runs on Apple’s black puck has been the main reason for buying one for many people, but it has become a dead end for Kodi.
If you are currently using an AppleTV2 for Kodi, you may already have realised how the quality of the XBMC/Kodi experience has degraded on the device since the release of Frodo. The HD playback is unstable and liable to crash the device, and the overall performance is beginning to fall behind other platforms which are based on more recent hardware. From a developer’s point of view the AppleTV2 is a major challenge because Apple never released any Software Development Kit for it. The fact that XBMC/Kodi has ever been able to run on it is a testament to the countless hours of hacking by Scott Davilla and Edgar Huceke. I want to personally give a big thanks to both of them for all they have done with the box. Without this work XBMC/Kodi would never have been able to support the iOS platform at all, and yet today it remains alive and well on numerous tablets and phones.
Maintaining the AppleTV2 for XBMC/Kodi became more and more demanding each time Apple decided to update the AppleTV2′s iOS Version. The big bang was iOS6 where I had to rewrite a substantial amount of the AppleTV2 specific code to do runtime hooking, an obscure means of adding functionality to iOS that Apple never intended iOS to have, because Apple made it even more obvious that they didn’t want 3rd party apps to be run on the black box by removing the private Framework which all our work previously relied upon. There are no tools to work for this platform – most of the work can only be done by trial and error and carefully watching log files. That’s not the way sane development works in 2015 anymore.
All in all I am sadly not able to restore the stability of Frodo in the current Kodi versions. The memory of the AppleTV2 is limited to 256MB and each time Apple decides to push a new app to it (like Netflix) there is less free memory for us. Also there is a lot of new code hitting our mainline tree daily and it’s almost impossible to keep an eye on its influences to this closed platform.
This virtual impossibility of maintaining stability while introducing new features and other refactors demanded by technological progress is why we will now stop building our code for this platform.
