2019-02-07

Millions of nude selfies have been leaked online following a security flaw on a dating app.

Jack’d – a gay dating app – allows users to upload and send NSFW pictures to those they have spoken with but now it’s has been reported that due to a security flaw, the images can be accessed by anyone with a web browser.

According to the tech website, The Register, the app was made aware of the flaw around three months ago but has failed to fix the problem as of yet.

Luckily, there doesn’t seem to be anyway of connecting the pictures to individual accounts, but the tech site suggests that location data and other meta data about users may also be publicly available.
