Twitter substitute Hive disables its app to address serious security flaws


Team members at the newly popular Twitter alternative Hive are in over their heads. The company has now taken the fairly radical step of fully shutting down its servers for a couple of days in response to concerns raised by security researchers who discovered a number of critical vulnerabilities on Hive, several of which they say remain unfixed.

The flaws they discovered would give attackers access to all data, including deleted direct messages, shared media, and private posts and messages. They would also give them the power to edit other users’ Hive posts. In order to fix these issues, Hive announced that its servers would be temporarily shut down.

Additionally, it was asserted across a number of tweets that they never informed the researchers that the problems had been “fixed,” only that they were “fixing” them before deciding to go offline until the issues had been resolved.
