PDD Holdings, or Pinduoduo (NASDAQ: PDD), the parent company of the renowned Chinese e-commerce platform Temu, saw a significant upswing last month.

Investors open investigation into PDD after ‘spyware’ accusations
While PDD investors have enjoyed robust returns in the recent period, there may soon be reason for caution due to legal concerns.
The move came after research firm Grizzly Research unveiled a report on September 7, alleging that PDD’s widely-used shopping app, Temu, “is the most dangerous malware/spyware package currently in widespread circulation.”
“The app has hidden functions that allow for extensive data exfiltration unbeknown to users, potentially giving bad actors full access to almost all data on customers’ mobile devices.”– Grizzly Research stated in the report.
PDD”s shares fell on the report by nearly 5%.
Although the stock somewhat recovered since then, PDD investors could adopt a more cautious approach in the coming period, depending on the future developments in the ongoing investigation.
