Clubhouse: A law would allow China to access free-to-air data

We are hearing so much about it right now Clubhouse, social network which bases the totality of the interactions between the community through the sole use of the voice. The platform has been on for some time now App Store, but only recently has she come out of her shell to make herself known to the public. However, it will also arrive on Android.

The team of Alpha Exploration, or rather the developer, was so taken aback by this “popularity” that he was forced to insert a sort of access by invitation in order to keep at bay the immense amount of traffic that would soon arrive on the platform.

All this visibility, however, also attracts onlookers, industry experts and privacy-conscious who would like to know with whom and if their personal data that passes through the platform is shared. Well, there would be updates on this. In fact, some investigations were carried out and the information collected by Stanford Internet Observatory reported that the platform has several vulnerabilities, for which an attack could be successful and which would then identify the location of user data.

The data flow would also be controlled by a third company called Now. This would store the user data in clear text without therefore having a valid encryption key. These flows also contain the IDs of the users and it goes without saying that each has the same name, surname and other sensitive information.

Since Agora is a Chinese-based company, due to a law it must be available to the government to possibly provide data, recordings, audio messages, etc. All of this may be required for no particular reason, primarily in the name of national security.

In short, we are waiting for further news. The Stanford Internet Observatory however, he has already contacted Clubhouse to provide him with documentation of the flaws found in the platform, inviting them to hurry up to fix them.
