Yoga guru Baba Ramdev's Patanjali had published a new online messaging app named Kimbho yesterday. The app was announced in a tweet by the company’s spokesperson SK Tijarawala. The so called 'desi' messaging app aims to take on the likes of WhatsApp and WeChat, however, it seems that the Kimbho app is nowhere as secure as it should be, and was instead, a total security nightmare. Going by the Tweets of renowned French security researcher Elliot Alderson (@fs0c131y), it is possible to break into the Kimbho app and send a customised security verification code between 0001 and 9999 to the phone number of your choice. Alderson later tweeted that the app is a complete rip-off of another application on the Apple’s App Store called ‘Bolo Messenger’ and that he is able to access messages of all users of the Kimbho app. The Kimbho app was taken down from the Play Store later during the day.
