TikTok has been exploding in popularity in recent years. The latest TikTok flaw surfaced online after two iOS developers used a simple hack to trick the app into connecting to their fake server.

This was possible because TikTok uses HTTP instead of HTTPS to pull in media content from the company’s Content Delivery Networks (CDNs). Using HTTP improves data transfer performance, but the lack of encryption puts users at risk. The developers — known collectively as Mysk — were able to leverage this to switch videos published by TikTok users with different videos via a DNS attack on a local network.

These developers just hacked the TikTok app with a DNS attack

DJ Roy, it seems like every single application can be hacked, it's only a question about time :)

Corona and Tictoc
You are forgetting those Chinese news app. China is a high moral country with adult materials banned. Meanwhile they run multiple app based news services with fake news, propaganda, clickbaits and semi adult images.

Try doing that to Netflix app. Then we will have a chat.

I mean, it all depends on human resources as well, and what developers would do for the specific security conditions. Of course, if we talk about Netflix - it would be hard as hell, I think. Talking of which, what do you think about promoting tools ( like here ) for channels in such services like TikTok and Netflix? Do you think it's fair that someone can visit any channel and statistics on that channel or account would be artificially bloated? What should administrators do with that?
