QuizUp iOS Trivia Game Lacks Privacy

Kyle Richter (via @joshsharp):

I have contacted the developer of QuizUp, Plain Vanilla, before posting this article to inform them of the security concerns that I had found. I have offered to assist them in any way possible. As of publishing they have not requested any details nor have I heard back from them in anyway after several days.

So QuizUp sucks down a lot of information from your Facebook account and for some unknown reason, sends it to everyone you play. Oh and the random people you play are probably fake “ghost” accounts. It could just be an innocent oversight rather than a malicious attempt to screw a user over, but you’re supposed to check this stuff before you ship it.
