Not sure if this is really going to affect many people here but I figure it's worth putting out there. Basically subtitles are being used to run arbirtary commands ony our computer if you use opensubtitles.org The effected players are Popcorn Time, Kodi, VLC, and Stremio
Hacked in Translation Demo - YouTube

Check Point researchers demonstrate remote code execution using subtitles in Popcorn Time and Kodi For more information, read our blog: http://blog.checkpoin...

I can't remember but I think plex might use stremio under the hood.

If I remember correctly Plex was a fork of XBMC (which became kodi) waaaaaay back in the day, so it might be vulnerable through that? Dunno if Plex had a re-write or something though.

Yeah I dunno, no doubt an update will be issued if that's the case.
