Encrypted messaging app Signal has pushed back against “viral reports” of an alleged zero-day flaw in its software, stating it found no evidence to support the claim.
“After responsible investigation *we have no evidence that suggests this vulnerability is real* nor has any additional info been shared via our official reporting channels,” it said in a series of messages posted in X (formerly Twitter).
Signal said it also checked with the U.S. government and that it found no information to suggest “this is a valid claim.” It’s also urging those with legitimate information to send reports to security@signal[.]org.
As a security precaution, it’s been advised to turn off link previews in the app. The feature can be disabled by going to Signal Settings > Chats > Generate link previews.
