April 24, 2010, after afternoon satellite platform CanalSat France has an attack of hackers who managed to pick up all the programs coded in the system, Viaccess PC3.0 and Viaccess PC2.5 a satellite ASTRA (19.2 E). Used in this module DiabloCAM Rev. 2. 3.9. In practice, this allowed not only receive the SD channels but also channels in HD quality at all frequencies CanalSat.

At that time, through DiabloCAM two channels were available MTVNHD, Disney Cinemagic HD France, 13eme Rue HD and many others. The equipment, which usually serves as a reader in the CI module, has become in this case, a free tool to receive pay deals of this platform. At the same time, the module DiabloCAM 2 allows for the unauthorized receipt of such platforms as Nova Cyprus, SRG SSR, Al Jazeera and CanalDigitaal. Bulgarian Bulsatcom has already updated keys and pirate reception is not possible.

For the moment we do not know what will make the owner of CanalSat and Viaccess conditional access system, which is Viaccess SA (part of France Telecom). Recall that the system also uses Viaccess PC3.0 Platform Polish TP (Orange), owned by the same company, but I do not hear about a threat by the pirates.
