I haven’t heard of #Giggle before but apparently they not only had a pretty bad vulnerability allowing anybody to query information of all accounts, they also made some rather questionable privacy choices. https://research.digitalinterruption.com/2020/09/10/giggle-laughable-security/
So they would keep the selfie meant only for verification, store the user’s geographic coordinates and keep account data after deletion. But that’s not what makes this case notable. Problematic vulnerability disclosures aren’t uncommon, but #Giggle managed to stand out here.
