YO!!!….. eh?

yo

YO…. hear of it? no? Its an app where you can send your people a “YO” imagine that, sending a “yo”. I can see the conversation already!
Yo!
Yo!
Yo!
Well you get my point. You can even have a 3 way conversation, or 4,5 as many as you want and nobody will know how many of your buddys are chatting with you.
Yo!
Yo.
Yo.
Yo!
Yo?
Cool hey? that was 3 people speaking. Who Knew? Which is good because “YO” has been hacked, yes….it has. Good thing that all the hackers got away with was the phone numbers of the user.
All the hackers could do was send people endless Yos.
Hmm, wait a minute! that may be true for you, but here is what Yahoo News had to say:
“Three students at the Georgia Institute of Technology say they can access any Yo user’s phone number, apparently by username. They can also spoof Yos, or send Yos on behalf of any user to any other user. They can also spam endless Yos to any user.
Imagine your phone shouting “Yo” over and over again without stopping. It’s easy to see how a harmless-seeming app could turn into a nightmare.
The Georgia Tech students also found a way to make Yo say more than just Yo — sort of. They can also access the app’s “push notifications,” or updates sent to a user’s phone about an app, and write any text into those notifications.”
Just imagine what a few hackers could do with that! Clever little App that, yo?
Me? I think I’m going to be a developer, cause I have a very innovative (learned that from Apple) idea! I’m going to publish “eh” the Canadian version.

    Eh? Eh? Eh? Eh?

      EH!

  • Thanks for the 411 nik. Seems I can do the same thing over BBM really quick by setting up a multiperson chat, or by setting up a BBM Group. It’s totally secure, I can share my location via Glympse, or files, voice notes or pictures, and in the case of a group, have tasks, a shared calendar, etc.

    I think the only reason people use these other platforms/networks is that they don’t know about the functionality of BBM.

      It says Yo! And then deletes itself in shock at being on such a decent device.
