This year, the Internet is getting it risky for users every month by month to protect our privacy on a social media platform. Now the microblogging site Twitter has recently informed that there is a bug in its Android app, and due to that user's data may get hacked. After Google and Facebook, the micro-blogging site Twitter (Twitter) is now at danger of data losses, with the company sending emails requesting Android users to update the app. In fact, last Friday, the company shared notice on twitter platforms on behalf of hackers about the virus code being implanted. Hackers can steal users' private data through these malicious codes. However, these codes on Twitter may affect the data of users from all around the world, including India.
The defect on Twitter's platform has revealed that hackers will be capable to tweet and message in addition to users' data. In other words, hackers can entirely manage users' accounts. Twitter has announced that data can be accessed with virus codes in the app through a compact process. Twitter states the any data leaks have not been reported by any user so far, even after the virus code was inserted. Additionally, proof of data fraud has not been found. However, the company has not given much information on the matter so far. A security patch for the Twitter platform has been issued, and users are being asked to update the app by sending emails.
And for your information that the virus code on Twitter will not affect iOS and web users. But these codes threaten the data of Android users, so the Twitter company has advised to update the app as soon as possible to its android users. A few days ago, an Indian user received a security warning, which revealed the wire code on Twitter's platform.
