Plex is not affected by "subtitle vulnerabilities" noted by Checkpoint

On 2017-05-23, Checkpoint Software Technologies Ltd. released a blog post, where they mentioned some vulnerabilities in software related to the handling of subtitles. Without providing specific details, they listed four separate and unrelated vulnerabilities in four separate apps.

Plex does not share any code with any of the app vulnerabilities that were mentioned. We have reviewed equivalent areas in our own products and we are confident that Plex is not affected by any of the vulnerabilities that Checkpoint discussed.
