The Telegram messenger doesn't cipher the message - the expert


All data of correspondences are stored in the usual database. To crack it, according to the expert, quite easily. The American expert Nathanael Sachi has said that the desktop version of the Telegram messenger doesn't cipher correspondence of users. He has reported about it on to Twitter page. While it's somewhat difficult to sift through (write some capable python scripts?) - similar to the issue with Signal - @telegram stores your messages in an unencrypted SQLite database. At least I didn't have to go through the effort to find the key this time :)) pic.twitter.com/gTRpSKVQAM — Nathaniel Suchy (@nathanielrsuchy) on October 30, 2018. According to the expert, all data of correspondences remain in the usual database which to crack won't make big work.
