Scripts injected inside the App could have easy access to users' private cookies and data.
Upon discovery, the exploit has been reported to the App's manager but 48 hours have passed and still no effort to fix the issue from either Renren or the App's manager has been made. It is estimated that at least 1,264,000 users are affected by this exploit.
