Tango PC App Poses Serious Security Threat

Not to be confused with the Windows Phone update, the Tango service is a cross-platform video calling service that is finding itself in hot water today. A user has discovered a serious security risk with the PC application, in that armed with a mobile number, you can gain access to any Tango user’s contact data and their account. Wow.

WPCentral reports that they used the specific method described and were able to download a colleague’s contact data, so if you’ve ever used this app before you may want to reconsider it. We won’t publish the details on how to accomplish this, but if we hear any word from the Tango developers on the situation, we’ll be sure and let you know.
