Hacker defaces spyware app’s site, dumps database and source code

Posted by in categories: mobile phones, security

A hacker has defaced the website of the pcTattletale spyware application, found on the booking systems of several Wyndham hotels in the United States, and leaked over a dozen archives containing database and source code data.

As Vice reported three years ago, this stalkerware app was also found leaking real-time screenshots from Android phones.

Described by its developers as an “employee and child monitoring software,” pcTattletale is a consumer-grade spyware solution that was leaking guest details and customer information captured from the hotels’ check-in systems because of an API security vulnerability, according to TechCrunch.
