Popular Go SMS Pro app leaks details of millions of users SMS messaging

One of Android’s most popular SMS messaging apps has a serious security flaw that the app developer does not appear to be interested in fixing. Photos, videos and any other type of file sent through Go SMS Pro, which has more than 100 million installs, is potentially at risk of being intercepted by a threat actor.

Back in August, security researchers at Trustwave discovered that when files were sent by a Go SMS Pro user to someone else that does not have the app, the file was sent to the app’s servers and a web address created. This address was then sent via text to the recipient so they could view the file online without installing the app.
