The researchers found three potential ways to alter conversations;

1. One of the methods involved the use of the “quote function” in a group conversation to change the sender’s identity.

“In this attack, it is possible to spoof a reply message to impersonate another group member and even a non-existing group member,”

2. Hackers can also change the text of someone’s reply and send private messages disguised as public messages to members of a group chat, so the target’s response is visible to all the participants in the conversation.

“By doing so, it would be possible to incriminate a person, or close a fraudulent deal, for example,”

3. A third vulnerability that has been fixed according to the firm involved allowing private messages sent to group members to be disguised as public. 

“The three methods involve social engineering tactics to fool end-users,” the firm said.

  1. Safe to point out all the flaws use the group feature which is the weakest of them all. All the same the Telegram app just needs popularity as even with their open-source nature in the sense as third parties can develop clients for the app as opposed to Whatsapp, they are still more reliable than them. Thanks Prof for the share.
