The Indian version of Twitter, the Indian Twitter Kuo app, is becoming quite popular in the country and by Wednesday more than 3 million people had downloaded it. But as its popularity is increasing, so are the controversies related to it. After reports of the first Chinese investor making money in Koo App, now a French hacker has claimed that personal data of users is being leaked from Koo App. But the company has called these allegations baseless and said that the e-mail exposure being talked about is fixed.
In fact, Robert Baptiste, a French hacker and cybersecurity researcher, also known as Elliott Anderson on Twitter, claimed that the Kuo app was leaking users’ personal information. , These include information such as the user’s email id, phone number and date of birth. Elliot Anderson also shared several screenshots to substantiate his claim, saying that he spent 30 minutes on the Koo App at the behest of users. This app is not safe for users and one can easily steal users’ data.
The company gave this clarification on the data leak
Bapperist had shared information about IAS officer Sonal Goel’s profile and claimed that he had other information related to this account. But the founding father of Koo App, Irrational Radhakrishna, has termed these allegations as fixed and baseless. The incomparable Radhakrishna said that the data leak controversy is being made unnecessarily. The claim made about the data is the data taken after the permission of the users. When a user creates his profile on Koo, information like e-mail, mobile number, date of birth, gender and education are taken from him.
Irrational Radhakrishna said that users enter some of their profile data to share with other users on this platform. This is the same information shown by the hacker. He said that the data that is causing so much ruckus is the data of the users which is in the public domain, which is also known to the users. You can check this information by going to anyone’s account.
