exploit a bug


Senior Member
We have included portable targeted intrusion tools that have tactical capabilities as well as tms-RMS, which is Trojan-horse technology, and various deployment technologies and techniques for physical, tactical, and other advanced forms of deployment.

In addition to the above, we have exploited a bug in the Telegram implementation which enables the duplication of Telegram communications of specific targets.
I'm wondering what could be the meaning of "exploited a bug" here?

    A bug is a defect in a software program. When you exploit this defect, you use it to your own advantage to do something with the program, such as gain access to the program and add additional coding of your own to do something nefarious (usually). :)
