In Telegram have found serious vulnerability


In Telegram have found vulnerability because of which IP addresses of users revealed during calls through a messenger. The expert of safety Dhiraj Mishra in the blog has told about it. Leak happened because of direct peer connection between subscribers (peer-to-peer, or P2P) which costs in Telegram calls by default. In mobile versions this parameter can be changed in settings, however developers initially haven't provided such function in desktop programs. When using P2P IP addresses of both participants of a conversation are displayed in ravines. This vulnerability allowed to disclose location of the user, thereby creating threat of its confidentiality. Mishra has reported about the found leak to representatives of Telegram. Developers have quickly added a feature for shutdown of P2P-calls in desktop versions of the program and also have paid the expert 2 thousand euros (about 152 thousand rubles) as an award. At the end of August it became known that Telegram has agreed to issue to intelligence agencies data of users. Later the founder of a messenger Pavel Durov has explained that this condition doesn't concern the Russian departments. It is more than important news in Film of Day Telegram-channel. Subscribe!
