this afternoon, the zhihu coarse event......

around 2 o 'clock this afternoon, three classes of cotton cloth teacher with your own iPhone login zhihu, then he saw he was shocked by the following interface -

zhihu millions of users' privacy could be a major accident leakage!

if you can't understand what it means to the above, let me tell you --

  1. this account is not cotton cloth teacher own;

  2. cotton cloth teacher here you can fully see the user's direct messages;

  3. even the user's answer anonymous, cotton cloth complete can also see the teacher.

so, this may mean that a large number of zhihu behind the leakage of users' privacy information!!!!!!!!!!

2 point 35, confirmed by the we test, only the IOS problems this end, android is all normal.

we use another iOS mobile login zhihu, found the zhihu iOS side even there was a problem loading, after changed WiFi as 4 g has no action.

and after each exit log back in, and will change and just another stranger the stranger and not the same.At this time of zhihu, seems to have completely confused.

about 2 PM before, during and after the 45 zhihu officials seem has taken some measures, string, no longer appear, but there was a line of code in your personal page error, the user can't be other operations.

zhihu millions of users' privacy could be a major accident leakage!

about 2 points about 50 points, zhihu officials suspected directly cut off the server, the entire zhihu APP on IOS have been unable to access.

zhihu millions of users' privacy could be a major accident leakage!

it should be said that the accident is an extremely serious accident.

imagine that you one day in zhihu anonymously posted many insider information involves the old club answer is, tomorrow will be what kind of impact to you?

, including all of your zhihu direct messages can be seen, what does that mean?

but now, this is likely to have happened...

about the accident, we asked some of the related industry, according to the analysis and interpretation of experience they give is:

one of, performance from the accident, the accident of problems is a problem of account number series and database.Among them, the series of problems revealed user privacy, if you have any anonymous in the next two days in the answer and direct messages are public, seems to zhihu to blame.

second, after the accident zhihu directly cut off the server, it seems, seems to be no backup database?If you have a backup, you can switch to the backup server directly, without rough cut affect the normal use of the average user.

third, appear such problems, either internal wrong operation, either external attack.Seems the former is more likely, if be true, may be behind the insinuation that are zhihu internal management and operation process problems, may also lead to internal related staff receive a severe punishment.

of course, on zhihu is written in python, this belongs to the pure technical problem, product dogs to cats often encounter this kind of situation will be very mad, so special hope technology people can read the interpretation of this event, let we can understand it.

however, the next zhihu will face a lot of the user's question, about how to reply, it also seems to be a multiple choice:

  1. pretends not to know...

  2. there are users to ask, the said technology shitty

  3. hang up?I see

  4. with the user said, a certain competitors did

  5. it's just that we're in a test

  6. sincere apology, release all inside inside

we might as well to see, see how zhihu will respond?
