After Facebook, this social media app also leaks user data

Berlin [Germany]October 1: Telegram's desktop application showed major flaws, including the user's public IP address and private IP address during a voice call.

Security researcher Dhiraj Mishra discovered a flaw in the telegram peer-to-peer framework. As explained in his blog inputzero, telegrams require customers to use only P2P connections for calls.

Mobile users can change settings to maintain confidentiality of information, but the desktop version does not allow such settings, so the IP address will be published.

Because of this flaw, hackers may have access to location information and other information related to IP addresses. Telegram has since corrected this flaw by adding a version 1.3.17 beta and 1.4 "P2P to anyone / my contacts" option.
