Durov gathering material for court Facebook: on behalf profited mechanically Solovyov | 22.06.2020
The founder of Telegram considering filing lawsuits against Facebook. According to him, last 2019 moderators of this social network are inactive, thereby indulging
the spread of fraudulent publications that illegally used the names of Paul and Nikolai Durov for his malopriglyadna business.
The task force scheme of deception that Pavel Durov cited as examples of users are retirement age. The ad in the popular social network promoted “unique
trading platform”, allegedly developed by the brothers Nikolai and Pavel Durosimi offering to get a solid increase to pension in the form of profits from trading securities. The case of a 65-year-old
the pensioner, who shared the incident, some time widely discussed in the media and on the web. She, tempted by advertising that the offer was sent by “a broker” link and filed
the application for registration. To start stock trading, according to pseudobrookite, she had to Deposit “brokerage company” in the amount of 11 thousand rubles, and then go another link
– supposedly in order to install the program to trade on the exchange. As the laptop is this program even after several attempts to install failed “specialist trading platform” offered
pensioner to work with the smartphone, which supposedly need to download the software for remote access TeamViewer. She very imprudently did. After that malefactors, having
access to her personal account in the savings Bank of the Russian Federation, filled in her name for a loan substantial in size. Unaware that her debit card has already transferred the amount of approved loan
the pensioner, following the instructions of fraudsters, in a telephone conversation confirmed employee of the savings Bank of the Russian Federation the transaction against the transfer of funds, ignoring the warning that it can
becoming a victim of fraud. Literally a minute after the incident retired, I thought about what is happening, I wanted to cancel this transfer, but it was too late.
Despite the fact that the police took her statement and filed a case for fraud committed by a group of persons, the loan that she received from Sberbank of the Russian Federation, to pay
have to – and it was worth about 190 thousand. Because she, personally, “being of sound mind and memory”, has granted third parties access to your personal account in the Bank.
Pavel Durov, whose name was used to promote this fraudulent scheme, said that Facebook for over a year, ignore complaints, and makes the financial inexperience of the users with
the fact that the political censorship in the Network is carried out regularly. He called on Facebook users to search for and collect and other ads where intruders are exploiting its name in advertising their
dubious services. It is not excluded that the collected ads “can be claimed in the judicial process,” says the founder of the Telegram.
Experts recalled that this incident is not the first in the “war” Durov with the company of Mark Zuckerberg. For example, in may 2019, after many versions of the application WhatsApp (WhatsApp for
business, in versions for iOS, Android and Windows Phone) found the vulnerability that allows you to hack messenger with a special video, Pavel Durov, has publicly warned that
critical vulnerabilities will arise again and again. “Every time WhatsApp need to fix a critical vulnerability in the application, in its place appears a new one”. Thus, in his opinion,
company Facebook tried to enter the public astray, by asserting that “evidence of the use of the vulnerability by hackers is not.”
He remembered previous, discovered in the messenger in 2018, a vulnerability through which the manufacturer spyware NSO Group attacked using a specially configured distributed
malicious code lawyers, human rights defenders and journalists – a total of almost 1,400 civil society activists.
In November 2019 the founder of Telegram opposed the use of WhatsApp messenger, offering users to remove it from their mobile devices if they do not want their photos and
messages become the property of anyone.
“WhatsApp is a trap for suckers, still trusting Facebook in 2019, we Can assume that in WhatsApp every few months by accident a critical vulnerability, but I
I doubt it. In the Telegram we had no such problems since launch. It is very unlikely that you can casually and regularly to prevent gross violation of security Protocol, besides such convenient
for the needs of espionage,” media quoted him saying.
In addition, on days under his criticism and got IT-giants Apple and Google. The reason was high – 30% – sales tax rate digital products for mobile phones that charge these companies. “The
result – users pay higher prices, start-ups and entire industries get destroyed or never appear. Regulators have been ignoring this absurdity for 10 years” (as a result, users pay more
high prices, start-UPS, and entire industries collapse or not appear at all. Regulators ignore this nonsense for 10 years), – he wrote on his Twitter page. Users of mobile gadgets, it is advised you to install applications via alternative
the apps stores or directly.
