  • How a Russian Teenager Cracked Nation's Largest Social Network in His Spare Time

    Ilya Glebov is 17 years old. This spring he graduated from one of the best school in Monchegorsk – a small town in Murmansk Oblast with a population of over 40 thousand people. While preparing for his Unified State Exam (USE) in computer science, he stumbled upon an article about a vulnerability in Facebook’s security system that made possible the hacking of nearly all of the accounts on the social network. He decided to try the same “trick”, as Ilya calls it, with VK. Eventually he discovered that such a vulnerability was also present in the Russian social network. Ilya was rewarded with two thousand dollars for his discovery and he received one more thousand from ICQ’s bug-bounty program after it was revealed that that platform was, too, susceptible to this method. However, Ilya will only be able to get his money after he turns 18. Right now he is planning to enrol in a university to study information security. He spoke to ITMO.NEWS about how he managed to find a flaw in Russia’s biggest social networks in between studying.
