The German manufacturer of the Dreambox Linux-based set-top boxes has distanced itself from legal action being undertaken by the Kudelski Group. The Swiss security company has launched legal action against two sellers of pirate cards in the wake of the recent breach in its conditional access system deployed by Cablecom.
Dream says that it does not support smart card piracy or the activities of the pay-TV pirates and will back any action against them. However, the Lünen-based company is quite clearly irked by the implication that the Dreambox product itself is illegal, and says the problem lies with illegal software patches and smart cards. The company says it will take its own legal action against anyone claiming the Dreambox to be illegal.
