Due To This Reason, Famous VLC Media Player Banned In India, Website Blocked


VLC Media Player Ban: Popular Media Player Software and Streaming Media Server VLC Media Player have been banned in India. The VideoLAN project developed it. According to the report of MediaNama, the VLC media player has been banned in India, although it has been almost 2 months since it was banned. But, if this software is on your device, it must work. Neither the company nor the Government of India has said anything about this.

Some reports said that the VLC media player was banned in India because the platform was used for cyber attacks by the China-backed hacking group Cicada. Security experts discovered that Cicada used the VLC media player to deploy a dangerous malware loader a few months ago. This was part of his cyber attack campaign.
