GitHub, a popular open source platform, received a police tip. The app was removed after police filed a case and protests escalated. The application worked by collecting images of many girls and young women. Images of journalists, activists and artists were also found to have been used for propaganda purposes. This information was published via GitHub. The information came to light after several people shared photos of women on Twitter using the app’s feature. For this, the image of the girls collected from various social networks was used. When the app opens, you will be asked to click on ‘Fine Your Sully Off Day’. After clicking on it, a photo of a Muslim girl titled ‘Sulli of the Day’ and her information will be available on social media. Visitors to Apple will be able to share this information on social media. The information came to light after hundreds of photos of women were shared in this way. Apple used to describe women as “bargains” today. Many women have blocked social media due to the leaked images. An unidentified woman told the BBC that it was “scary” that personal information was leaked. The company said in a statement that it had suspended the operation of the application following the publication of the information.
