TikTok denies that hackers have leaked its source code and sensitive user data

TikTok Hack

A few days ago, a hacker group known as “AgainstTheWest” shared a post on a hacking forum claiming to have found security breaches in TikTok and WeChat. However, despite what the group says, TikTok has officially denied all reports about hackers having leaked its source code and sensitive user data.

The original post made by AgainstTheWest contains screenshots of a database that allegedly belongs to TikTok and WeChat. The hackers claim that the 790GB database has over 2 billion records, including user data, platform statistics, software code, tokens, and more.

However, TikTok doesn’t seem happy about the accusations. The company said in a statement to BleepingComputer (via The Verge) that all of the hacker group’s allegations are false. “This is an incorrect claim,” says a company spokesperson. According to TikTok, the source code shared on the forum is not related to the company’s platform.
