TikTok has swiftly responded to a cyberattack targeting high-profile accounts, addressing a vulnerability that allowed malicious actors to take control.

The attack, involving the sending of direct messages containing harmful code, impacted users like CNN and Paris Hilton. While TikTok has yet to disclose the exact number of affected accounts or the nature of the vulnerability, efforts are underway to restore access to those affected.

Fortunately, the hack, categorized as a zero-click attack, poses minimal risk to average users. This incident marks another notable security challenge for TikTok, following past breaches affecting hundreds of thousands of accounts in Turkey and a billion users worldwide.
