BY STEPHEN CLARK-BECKER Posted May 13, 2017 11:03:00The search engine giant is turning discuz into an app for hackers to bypass security protections, and a new security flaw could allow them to do so.
The company, which counts Amazon as a client, has been working on the feature since early 2016, but a vulnerability was discovered late last year and a patch is now available.
Discuz uses a Google-built platform called Google Discuz to allow users to upload files to its website.
The app also allows for uploading videos and audio.
Discusuz is currently available in the UK, US, Canada and Germany, and users in those countries can upload files and view them online.
Users in the US, where Google is headquartered, can download the app on iOS and Android devices.
The flaw, discovered by researchers at Microsoft, could allow a hacker to upload the file of a target website or app to Discuz.
The vulnerability affects both iOS and Windows 10 versions of the app.
Discuz will only be available in Canada and the US for now, according to a Google spokesperson.
The vulnerabilities also affect the app’s “shared folder” feature.
If a malicious website or service uploaded a file to a shared folder, the files would be uploaded to the user’s own account.
The malicious website could then upload the malicious file to the Discuz server.
The researchers also found a “malicious app” flaw that could allow the malicious app to download malicious files to a user’s computer.
The flaws are likely to be used by criminals to download files from websites or steal information, the researchers said in a blog post.
They said the flaws were likely not an isolated incident.
Microsoft and Google are known for their security measures.
Microsoft has been known to take the lead in cracking security holes, and Google has long been an early adopter of security features in its Android apps.
Discuuz has not been used widely in the past, but it has been used by some users.
Microsoft said last year that it had closed an issue that allowed malicious apps to run on the app, which affected up to 30 million people.
Microsoft did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Apple, Google and Microsoft all have products in the App Store that can be used to install malicious software.
Microsoft also announced in February that it would be releasing a software update that would block “hacking bots” that could be used in discuz to bypass “secure security features.”
Microsoft’s Discuz is available in a variety of languages, including Arabic, German, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.
Microsoft’s latest patch for the issue can be downloaded from the Microsoft Security Bulletin website.
