Data breach on TikTok! 2 billion user database stolen

Cyber-security researchers found out that a data breach in the Chinese short-form video app TikTok allegedly involved up to 2 billion user database records.

A TikTok spokesperson was quoted as saying in news reports that their security team “investigated this statement and determined that the code in question is completely unrelated to TikTok’s backend source code”.

Microsoft 365 Defender Research Team just discovered a vulnerability in the TikTok app for Android that can let hackers take over private, short-form videos of millions of users once they clicked on a malicious link.
