Critical Vulnerabilities Force Twitter Alternative Hive Social Offline


Founded in 2019, Hive Social is seen by many as an alternative to Twitter, which is having its own troubles now, with the resignation of a top security chief and new information emerging on a recent data breach.

With numerous concerned users fleeing Twitter following its acquisition by Elon Musk, Hive Social has registered a spike in new accounts, and announced in November 2022 that it has surpassed 1.5 million accounts.

On November 30, German security collective Zerforschung published a blog post to warn of many security vulnerabilities identified in Hive Social’s code.
