Gay Disaster: Grindr Hacked

So this finally happened: “A popular ‘meat-market’ smartphone app that spawned a sexual revolution in Australia’s gay community has been compromised by a Sydney hacker, potentially exposing intimate personal chats, explicit photos and private information of users.” Ta da! But wait, there’s more: “A security expert who did not wish to be named… said that the Grindr and Blendr apps ‘had no real security.’” The modern age is fun where we just trust all our data and naked pictures to anyone who makes an app!
