Yo iPhone, Android App Hacked Already

The Yo app has enjoyed a good progress only in its first couple of days as an iOS and Android instant messaging app. It was created by an Israeli developer with the idea of merely saying “yo” to your friends. On App Store’s list of freebies, this app appears to be on the fourth and this isn’t really so bad considering it’s a newly formed app but that doesn’t mean that other things are going on fine with it. The launch itself was a double-edged sword and there were possible chances of loopholes for bugs which can lead ways to hacking.

It has been seen that the Yo app is quite unique considering that it only lets you ping another user with just a “yo”. And maybe that is why it was much of an attraction for the hackers who have found their way to dig holes in the service. The knowledgeable hacker is the one to be scared of as he can find out another user’s phone number and can also spoof messages from any Yo user. The developer company is saying that the issue is being taken under consideration and it is being seriously monitored to bring up a solution soon.
