New vulnerability of Telegram causes data leakage


The expert of safety has said that IP addresses of users reveal during calls through a messenger. The expert in the field of safety Dkhiradzh Mishra has found in the Telegram messenger dangerous vulnerability because of which IP addresses of users revealed during the calls made in the program. He has reported about it in the blog. He has noted that leak happens because of the direct peer connection between subscribers (peer-to-peer, or P2P) established in settings of a messenger by default. In mobile version this option is available to shutdown. But developers haven't provided this opportunity in desktop. As a result when using P2P IP addresses of both participants of a conversation are shown in ravines. And it, in turn allows to learn location of the user. I have reported about the found Mishr's vulnerability to developers of a messenger who have already added a feature to turn off function in the desktop version of the program. At the same time Mishra has received two thousand euros as an award. Earlier it was reported that in Windows serious vulnerability which allows to install viruses on the computer has been found.
