Those responsible for the exclusive application for the iPhone Clubhouse confirmed the leak of private data from conversations between users earlier this week. The clarification was made public after US security investigators revealed that the audio of some conversations was posted on another website.
The social network now guarantees that it has banned the person responsible for the escape and has put in place new safeguard measures to prevent conversations from being exposed again.
Clubhouse had guaranteed that it was impossible to be attacked by hackers
This incident comes shortly after the company said it was impossible to fall victim to an attack by hackers. Despite what happened, the attack does not appear to have been malicious in nature, and may even have been carried out to demonstrate the weaknesses of the platform.
Those responsible for the application felt it was necessary to reaffirm the security of the Clubhouse after researchers at Stanford University discovered several security flaws.
Among these flaws was the fact that the user identification numbers and chat rooms created by them are transmitted in text, without any encryption.
This fact may allow their association with specific profiles, contrary to the notion of privacy proclaimed by the company. In fact, some conversations by Elon Musk were published on YouTube at the Clubhouse.
Clubhouse is the social network of fashion
If you don’t know the Clubhouse yet, this is a social network that favors voice. There are no comments, private messages, photographs (other than profile), videos or memes.
Users come together in rooms (private or public) that are divided between speakers and audience. One of the great compliments that can be given to you is that it has the potential to put you listening or talking to some of the people you most admire, and can be seen as a hybrid between radio and the podcast format.
The social network is for now only accessible to those who have an iPhone or iPad, but it is possible that it will reach other platforms in the near future if the success seen in recent weeks is maintained.
