Telegram failure accidentally causes a leak of the IP addresses of its users

Researcher Dhiraj Mishra has discovered a security flaw in the Telegram desktop client, by means of which the application filtered users' IP addresses when they made voice calls, something that happened even with the maximum privacy setting in the peer-to-peer connection option.

The company said in an official statement that this problem only affected 0.01% of its customers and that they have launched new versions of the application to correct it, v1.4.0 for desktop and v1.3.17 Beta.
