Telegram leaked private IP addresses during conversations

Therefore, you should update the instant messaging service.

Security scientist Dhiraj Mishra has revealed that Telegram, the lightning service, known for its commitment to security, leaked information about both private and public IP addresses during voice calls.

Clog the hole before the weekend
This was only a matter of PC conversations and was due to Telegram's machine-to-machine framework. Mobile users have long been able to disable this, but until a recent update, this was the only voice call option on the PC release of the instant messaging service. It is not known how many were affected by this.

The problem is fortunately addressed in versions 1.3.17 beta and 1.4 of Telegram, which was released before the weekend. In these versions, under Privacy (Security), you can choose to disable machine-to-machine conversations altogether, or only allow it for people in the contact list.

Mishra was rewarded with 2000 euros, nearly 19,000 kroner, to discover the weakness.
