The good news is that Facebook confirmed Symantec’s findings, and has said it will fix the problem in the next version of its Android app. Furthermore, the social network says that it does not use or process the phone numbers it has been receiving, and has deleted them from its servers. [We hope!]

Twitter bug gives 3rd-party apps access to users' Direct Messages

Twitter bug gives 3rd-party apps access to users' Direct Messages | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

"There should be millions of Twitter users that have signed in with Twitter into third-party applications. Some of these applications might have gained access to and might still have access to Twitter users private direct messages," he points out, and advises users to check third-party applications permissions and revoke the apps to which they never gave permission to access their DMs.

Vorsicht: Tausende iPhone-Apps mit Sicherheitslücke

Vorsicht: Tausende iPhone-Apps mit Sicherheitslücke | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
Security-SuperGAU für alle Nutzer von iPhones und iPads: Experten haben eine Lücke in iOS-Apps entdeckt, die es erlaubt, die komplette Kommunikation über fremde Server umzuleiten. Tausende Apps sollen betroffen sein.

 

Über HTTP Request Hijacking sollen sich Hacker in iOS-Apps einschleichen und so den Datentraffic über eigene Server umleiten können. Nach erfolgreichem Angriff soll die Umleitung dann permanent aktiv sein.

 

===> Einzige Abhilfe schafft ein Update oder eine Neuinstallation der App. <===
