Yo App Hacked By College Students | TechCrunch

A multifaceted sign of the times

"A Georgia Tech student, together with two of his room mates [sic], claims to have hacked Yo, the Poke-like app which has set some Silicon Valley alight (though not others) in the last 48 hours. [See update below: Yo has confirmed it has been hacked].

The student emailed TechCrunch detailing what he alleges is the results of the hack: “We can get any Yo user’s phone number (I actually texted the founder, and he called me back). We can spoof Yo’s from any users, and we can spam any user with as many Yo. We could also send any Yo user a push notification with any text we want (though we decided not to do that).”"
