“Our solution is intended primarily for parents who want to make sure their children do nothing illegal on P2P networks,” the company said in a statement to French media last week while adding that just because the software is running, it doesn’t mean that users are fully protected against legal action under Hadopi.

History tells us that whenever a company gets involved in anti-piracy action, they leave themselves open to being probed. Several anti-piracy companies and groups have seen their systems examined and even hacked over the years, and Orange is no different.

Bluetouff has documented his findings on the Orange system and they are pretty surprising.

Using WireShark to sniff the output of the software on his location network, Bluetouff was able to identify an IP address used by the software to obtain its updates.

“The software communicates with a remote server, a Java servlet actually located on the ip 195.146.235.67,” he explains.

Nothing too out of the ordinary there – except that all information is not only being transmitted in the clear but all information on that server is public (via
http://195.146.235.67/status), meaning that every user had their IP addresses exposed to the public. But it doesn’t stop there.
