Wechat has become a necessary APP application for most smartphone users. Its frequency of use is much higher than other applications. Therefore, Wechat has always been the focus of major marketing companies. For this reason, Wechat has been tampered with by cracking, plugging and other means to obtain some functions or conveniences.
The Wechat team has always been zero tolerant of this kind of behavior. Before that, it has restricted the third-party client's login. However, some users still use Xposed to assist the function of Wechat. Recently, Wechat issued another announcement to severely crack down on the plug-in of Wechat, claiming to modify the function and interface of Wechat, add malicious functions, seriously damage the rights and interests of users, and interfere with the normal operation of Wechat. Yes, it is an illegal act.
WeChat Security Center announcement on cracking down on "WeChat Marketing" plug-in:
Last week, WeChat Security Center released < development,="" />
The plug-in software uses (and is not limited to) Xposed, substrate and other technical frameworks to inject control modules into the process space of Wechat software, modifying the functions and interfaces of Wechat, adding malicious functions, seriously damaging the rights and interests of users, interfering with the normal operation of Wechat, which is illegal and illegal.
Once confirmed, the Wechat security team will impose penalties such as restricting functions and even restricting login for accounts that explicitly use plug-in functions; for those who violate regulations many times, the penalties will be aggravated according to the principle of gradient processing. In addition, for the use of xposed, substrate and other modules to develop malicious functions, harass users, destroy the platform environment, illegal profits and their business entities, Wechat will retain all the rights to pursue their legal responsibility.
The plug-in software developed by illegal merchants based on Xposed, substrate and other technical frameworks contains and is not limited to the following functions: violent powder feeding, one-button group push, automatic response robot, Global Virtual positioning, automatic promotion of Wechat group, batch increment and deletion of micro-signal friends, etc. These plug-in functions breed and connive malicious marketing behavior, greatly improving the Gang nature such as fraud. The possibility of malicious behavior has caused harassment or even loss to normal users, seriously disturbed the platform's healthy ecology, and seriously endangered the platform.
1. Wechat plug-in provides convenience for malicious marketing behavior, and causes harassment to normal users of Wechat.
2. It is easy to be used by criminals to publish bad information and commit fraud, which contributes to the occurrence of crimes.
3. Unauthorized by Tencent, it tampers with the functions of Weixin, disturbs normal users and destroys the ecological balance and normal operation of Weixin platform.
4. There are security risks such as collecting and divulging user privacy information and stealing user account password.
The Wechat team has been committed to creating a green, safe and healthy network environment, and opposes any behavior that disrupts the normal use of Wechat. We will continue to crack down on such acts which seriously damage user experience in accordance with laws and regulations such as the Anti-Unfair Competition Law of the People's Republic of China, Tencent Weixin Software Licensing and Service Agreement and Weixin Personal Account Usage Standard.
Finally, we once again call on users to cherish their account use rights, in order to your information security and account function normal use, please do not use any form of plug-in software, especially under the banner of all kinds of "WeChat marketing" and "WeChat marketing", but are actually providing some plug-in services or functions. If you have installed or are still using plug-in, please uninstall it immediately. If you find a circle of friends, someone in the WeChat group uses WeChat plug-in software. Welcome to WeChat client and Mini Programs.
Again, software developers and operators should not develop malicious programs that destroy the data of Wechat software system and provide relevant services reasonably and legally.
