No App can Stop CIA said Telegram's Founder

Messaging app don't secure your message, untill OS is patched

The founder of popular secure messaging app Telegram, Pavel Durov explained that CIA can snoop and reads you every talks even if you are using secure messaging service.

He said that, hackers don't need to target any particular apps to read your conversation, rather he/she can also do it by exploiting the Vulnerabilities on mobile operating system.

By exploiting the OS bug, attackers can gain access to users device keyboard that allow them to know which key you press.

"To put 'Year Zero' into familiar terms, imagine a castle on a mountainside. That castle is a secure messaging app. The device and its OS are the mountain. Your castle can be strong, but if the mountain below is an active volcano, there's little your engineers can do." he explained. "So in the case of 'Year Zero', it doesn't matter which messenger you use."

"No app can hide what shows up on your screen from the system. And none of this is an issue of the app." said Durov
 Durov urges OS vendor (Google, Apple) to fix the Vulnerabilities as soon as possible, as there is no other way.

Moreover we have got to know that Apple have already fixed some of the CIA exploiting bugs but not all. And other applications vendor like Notepad++ and VLC media player have already issued patch for the bug.

Google team is also on there on way to fix what they need. However, WikiLeaks founder Jillian Assange have said they will start working with tech firm to fix the issue rather to disclose it publicly.
