Google recently launched the Digital Payment App for India. This app also introduced the company referral program, whereby the user gets Rs 51 on every referral. Referral means that if you refer someone and the user installs the app through your link then the money will be received in your account at 51 rupees.
There is a big drawback in the Google Rapid Referral Program. By using it any hacker can hack your Gmail account easily. A bug was found in the referrals of Google Tea, which hackers can hack a user’s Gmail account session.
Update -The use of Google’s sharp app referrals is now safe and secure. Google has fixed this bug.
Indian hacker Yogesh Tantak has given information to Google about this bug found in the fast app raffle. However, after getting the information, Google has cured this bug. When we talked with Yogesh Tantak, he told us that Google has cured it and now Hackers cannot misuse it. He has also told us how hackers can use it to easily use any user’s account in Google referral.
In fact, using a bug of sharp referrals i.e. the bug could have injected the arbitrary code. This could steal the Gmail token of the customer that this referral code has been sent to. By doing this, the attacker can take Gmail account into account. The Google Security team believed that this is a bug and it was fixed later.
Account hacking was also more accurate than the referral program because the referral link was sent to him, he did not suspect he had any wrong link. Because the domain was on Google and seeing Google’s domain, people easily believe on the link. This bug was also very dangerous in this regard.
