A bit of progress on ScummVM for BB10

Got it building and running, there where some funny business with C++ libraries and alsa that for some reason didn't happen under the PlayBook SDK.

Still, needs bit of work on the control side, especially on this small screen trying to point with a finger is quite hard.

Onkyo receivers, very insecure networked devices

I've been working now awhile on my Onkyo Qt ISCP library and there is one not so funny thing about the protocol. There is no authentication or authorization whatsoever. So basically if you happen to be on the same network as a networked Onkyo you can do whatever you like.

From the not-too-bad: Change radio channel, switch input
To the not-so-nice: Turn the volume up as high as it goes, stream something nasty

Even the device setup web interface is open to everyone.

So don't put a networked Onkyo on a public IP and keep it on a private network that no outsiders can access.
