Voice messages of social network Vkontakte were in the open access

Part of the voice messages of users of the Russian popular social network Vkontakte (Vk) was in the open access.

On Monday, users of the social network reported that they can find personal voice messages of other users in the "Documents" section. It was noted that messages could be found on the search request “audiocomment.3gp”.

Representatives of the social network stressed that it is not a vulnerability in the mechanism of the site, as all voice messages in the Vk application protected and only participants can access the correspondence materials.

According to the Vk Press Service, audio records could get into open access if users downloaded them through third-party unofficial applications.

The Vk administration also added that the social network does not use the audio format audiocomment.3g. The company recommended using official Vk applications to avoid such leaks. At the moment, the Vk Team quickly removed from public access about two thousand audio messages.
