Usecrypt Expands Userbase to 17 Countries, Opens Offices in New York City and Brussels

NEW YORK, NY – July 5, 2018 – Usecrypt, the world’s most secure communication technology and Warsaw-based privacy movement, announced its continued global expansion with the opening of its U.S. office in New York City and second European office in Brussels, Belgium.

According to HubSpot, messaging apps, such as WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, and Signal, have more than 5 billion monthly users worldwide. Mobile users have been led to believe that their communication, both personal and business, has been secure and kept private but recent events have uncovered a starkly different reality. 

“There are too many programs and apps that promise privacy or user control, but the latest headlines have shown that they all have backdoors that are prone to hacks and software bugs,” said Jakub Kokoszka, co-founder of Usecrypt. “Unlike competitors, we don’t store and save copies of a user’s entire phone book or share data with potential advertisers. We believe that your data should be yours and yours alone. With Usecrypt, we are bringing that privacy back into the hands of our users.”

Usecrypt is the first messenger application that offers a fast, simple, and fully secured way to call, text, and share files that is even safer than face-to-face conversations. Data is not stored on Usecrypt’s server, which makes messages and call logs impossible to restore once the user permanently deletes them. Usecrypt offers fully secured texting, crystal clear domestic and international calling capabilities, hacker-proofing, and full at-rest and in-use protection with IP address anonymity for iOS and Android users.

“By expanding our presence across the globe, we are able to move at a more rapid pace of achieving our mission of creating a global society connected, and protected, by true privacy,” added Kokoszka.

Usecrypt has experienced rapid user-base growth in 17 countries, and Usecrypt Messenger recently ranked as the top paid social networking app in Poland on Apple’s App Store.

CVE-2020-15208
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-25
In tensorflow-lite before versions 1.15.4, 2.0.3, 2.1.2, 2.2.1 and 2.3.1, when determining the common dimension size of two tensors, TFLite uses a `DCHECK` which is no-op outside of debug compilation modes. Since the function always returns the dimension of the first tensor, malicious attackers can ...
CVE-2020-15209
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-25
In tensorflow-lite before versions 1.15.4, 2.0.3, 2.1.2, 2.2.1 and 2.3.1, a crafted TFLite model can force a node to have as input a tensor backed by a `nullptr` buffer. This can be achieved by changing a buffer index in the flatbuffer serialization to convert a read-only tensor to a read-write one....
CVE-2020-15210
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-25
In tensorflow-lite before versions 1.15.4, 2.0.3, 2.1.2, 2.2.1 and 2.3.1, if a TFLite saved model uses the same tensor as both input and output of an operator, then, depending on the operator, we can observe a segmentation fault or just memory corruption. We have patched the issue in d58c96946b and ...
CVE-2020-15211
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-25
In TensorFlow Lite before versions 1.15.4, 2.0.3, 2.1.2, 2.2.1 and 2.3.1, saved models in the flatbuffer format use a double indexing scheme: a model has a set of subgraphs, each subgraph has a set of operators and each operator has a set of input/output tensors. The flatbuffer format uses indices f...
CVE-2020-15212
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-25
In TensorFlow Lite before versions 2.2.1 and 2.3.1, models using segment sum can trigger writes outside of bounds of heap allocated buffers by inserting negative elements in the segment ids tensor. Users having access to `segment_ids_data` can alter `output_index` and then write to outside of `outpu...
