Despite more than 100 million downloads, Google pulled the popular third-party SMS app off the shelves immediately after security researchers disclosed the privacy vulnerabilities of the go SMS Pro app.According to the report, there is a vulnerability in GP SMS Pro that can be exploited by attackers to access users' images, videos, audio and other media files. But before the official exposure to the outside world, researchers have routinely given developers months of repair time.

This version of trustv91.7 seems to be vulnerable to security vulnerabilities. When the conversation between users is displayed in the app, the non user will get a link to display the content of the message.

Even messages sent between two go SMS Pro users can be presented as links. Unfortunately, users simply can't determine if their information has been stolen.

But what's most disturbing is that despite the contact between spiderlabs researchers and go SMS Pro developers, the go SMS Pro developers have been delayed for months to fix the vulnerability.
