“YO” continues to gain users but has security issues

We reported how the messaging app “YO” raised $1 million and at the time it had just over 50,000 users. The investment made mainstream media news and users jumped on to download the messaging service (giving that you just send a simple “YO”, not even sure if you can call it that) and they now have over 300,000 users.

But with popularity also comes risk and not surprisingly, since the app only took 8 hours to build apparently, it was hacked on Friday and the students send messages to all YO users.
