Well, at least the world of tech security isn’t boring.

Upon examining disk images taken from the most recent version of the app, iOS researcher Jonathan Zdiarski discovered that the software retains and stores a forensic trace of the chat logs even after the chats have been deleted, creating a potential treasure trove of information for anyone with physical access to the device. The same data could also be recoverable through any remote backup systems in place.

In most cases, the data is marked as deleted by the app itself — but because it has not been overwritten, it is still recoverable through forensic tools. Zdziarski attributed the problem to the SQLite library used in coding the app, which does not overwrite by default.

This has now happened and App Annie’s newest report on iOS revenues in Q2 has revealed even more explosive growth for the country. The site noted that China managed to generate nearly double the iOS App Store Games revenue it had just a year earlier in Q2 2015.
