"Betrayed by an app she had never heard of" - How TrueCaller is endangering journalists https://www.privacyinternational.org/case-study/2997/betrayed-app-she-had-never-heard-how-truecaller-endangering-journalists
A great example of why cell phones that do more than make calls should have never been a thing
@Gargron The link doesn't work for me currently.
But the Wikipedia page for TrueCaller has a "fun" detail.
Under "Security and privacy issues" there's a mention of a leak and the company claimed the attack didn't disclose passwords or credit card information.
Notably _absent_ in the "not disclosed" is any kind of private data. And the blog post being linked is gone so I can't check if they had the usual "no biggie" tone about it.
