Chingari app is gaining popularity very fast in recent times and especially after TikTok ban in India. Now a new information has come out, where it has been claimed that the website of Chingari app maker Globussoft is infected with malware. This claim has been made by renowned French security researcher Robert Baptiste, who runs an account on Twitter under the name Elliot Alderson. Posting on Twitter, Baptiste said: (translated) “The website of Globussoft, the company that develops Chingari app, which is said to be an Indian alternative to TikTok, has been compromised.” He said that all the pages in the site contained a malware script, which took the user to many different website pages. At the time of writing, Chingari’s team had not responded to a request for comment.

However, on Twitter, Chingari co-founder Sumit Ghosh Post Did: (Translated) ” Thanks for making me aware of wp issue, Chingari was introduced under Globusoft and built by us, did not compromise in any way with the security of Chingari app/website and our users. It is safely stored on dedicated and secure AWS. We will fix the WP issue soon.” he adds “The Globussoft website and the Chingari app have very different security/engineering teams behind them and are completely unrelated. Chingari will soon be an independent company.”

Baptist’s Post According to , a drop script has been inserted into the site to redirect users and contains a Report Contains where the redirect goes. Responding to Baptiste, another Twitter user (CitizenK, whose bio says he is a UI developer) wrote: wrote Bitdefender found cryptojacking malware on Globussoft’s website. Additionally, using a site check by website security service Sucuri, they found that the website contained multiple malware. Tech News by Careers Ready investigated it ourselves and after testing it on several websites including Chingari’s website, it found that the warning came only on the Globussoft site.

It should be noted that the presence of this malware does not point to any issues with the Chingari app, although Baptiste wrote in his last post on the topic that ‘it raises questions’.

Chingari app was released on Google Play and App Store and till last week it had been downloaded more than 25 lakh times. This free app is very similar to TikTok, but reviews on Google Play describe the app as being slow, with issues like only showing certain videos and crashing from time to time. It seems that it is getting a lot of support because the app is made in India. A review on Google Play states, (translated) “Downloaded to boost Indian developers, but compared to TikTok it still has a long way to go to become mainstream.”
