The evolution of Satellite TV encryption was closely followed by the emergence of new generation of Open Set Top Boxes (Satellite receivers) operating on most of the time on full linux operating system making them more computers like than simple receivers and bringing them to join the IoT. In this engaging session we will teardown a common satellite receiver and deep dive into its vulnerabilities from both design and technical point of view highlighting how far are Satellite TV Receivers from being secure IoT devices. We will start from hardware analysis and components identification to firmware and protocols analysis discovering its vulnerabilities at each level and their exploitability and attack vectors. We will also describe technically how easy an attack could be conducted at every step including its impact knowing that millions of such devices are connected to internet.
