Slack, the world’s largest business-oriented communication platform, offers users improvements by constantly updating its application. However, Slack came up with a serious security flaw this time.
It has been determined that users’ computers can be accessed through the desktop application with a critical vulnerability in Slack. It was stated that this vulnerability, which could not be detected by Slack’s security units, was discovered by third party security researchers.
It was emphasized that code can be run remotely with the relevant vulnerability. In this way, it has been announced that people can access the internet network from the files on their computers.
The person who identified the vulnerability and announced it on HackerOne was paid only $1,750. The fact that a $20 billion company gave a small reward for such a significant vulnerability caused a huge backlash. Slack paid about $36,000 for those who discovered the vulnerability in the last 90 days.
