Writes RIA Novosti about it. The gap in a security system of service allows hackers to manipulate messages both in personal correspondence of users, and in group chats. Such opportunity appears from behind vulnerability in tools for synchronization of data mobile and WhatsApp web versions. If you are afraid of something, then you can remove a messenger for a while until this problem is solved, most likely, it should just be updated, the CEO of the Zecurion company Alexey Rayevskiy:aleksey considers Rajevski the CEO of the Zecurion company "It is necessary to look at each vulnerability and to analyze as far as she can do harm to the user. If she can do harm, then it is necessary to suspend use of this program somehow. If isn't present, then it is enough to update the application. Producers quickly enough react to such messages and update applications". Besides, IT specialists of the Center of researches of legitimacy and a political protest have created the program at which Telegram stops being anonymous which he was always considered. As Izvestia writes, service sends the inquiry containing username to Telegram, and the application issues missing data of the user — ID and a phone number, a surname and a name which the user had entered in the account. Developers of the program have already begun to look for users at the request of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation. Even the most protected programs from time to time have holes, but thanks to such news developers quickly close them, the CEO of the agency of prospecting R-techno technologies Roman Romachyov:roman Romachyov the CEO of the agency of prospecting R-techno technologies "At any program has commented on a situation, any operating system there are vulnerabilities, especially Telegram is constantly updated, constantly there are new versions for phones and for desktop computers. Naturally, developers can't constantly reveal these vulnerabilities therefore both hackers, and some third-party organizations periodically test the program for vulnerabilities. The same Google is ready even to pay extra the fees for messages about this or that vulnerability. It is normal practice, I think that Telegram developers have to hear this news and analyse: if this vulnerability is, then to quickly release a patch. Day-two, and it will be closed".
