Hive Social, a social media platform, has shut down its servers after security experts found and disclosed serious flaws in its code. Hive Social, which was founded in 2019, is frequently cited as a Twitter substitute.
Twitter is currently experiencing its own problems as a result of the resignation of its top security executive and the release of fresh details regarding a recent data breach. Following Elon Musk’s acquisition of Twitter, many worried users left the platform.
As a result, Hive Social has seen an increase in new accounts and announced that it has surpassed 1.5 million accounts in November 2022. The German security group Zerforschung published a blog post on November 30 to alert readers to numerous security flaws found in the code of Hive Social.
