Serious security issues with the Sunbird app forced the company to exit the Google Play app store and eventually shut down the service in order to prevent users’ personal information from being compromised. This service, which was supposed to be a compatible solution for iMessage for Android, ended up with serious problems.
It revealed serious security flaws that were noticed and shared by many netizens Reddit site, of two important problems: one is the lack of end-to-end encryption in messages, which can leave messages vulnerable to interception. The second and more serious problem is with Sunbird’s servers because they stored all this information without encryption, which is a great opportunity for any computer criminal.
As a result of this issue, the service has been temporarily disabled in order to address these serious security issues that expose the personal information of users who used Sunbird. The company is already actively working to solve the problem, but it is not known how long it will take to restore services or how long it will take to restore the application to the Google Play Store.
Sunbird wanted to solve this problem, which involves direct communication between iPhone and Android phone users via iMessage. Despite successfully performing its core job, serious security and privacy holes in the service mean the system is currently awaiting a patch.
