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.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
