I'm not just referring to bunny boilers.
A security company, Checkmarx, has identified two vulnerabilities in both iOS and Android app for Tinder which allows a person on the same network to monitor what another is doing. it's also indicated that the bad actor could control pictures and possibly insert malicious content.
It's important to note that what a hacker could do through these flaws is relatively narrow, but it does allow a person to gain access to sensitive personal information. The issue is due to a lack of HTTPS encryption on photos; other elements of the app that do require this kind of encryption still leaked enough information to be able to monitor a user's actions.
