WhatsApp Hacking Report: Your WhatsApp may beat at risk

If you use WhatsApp ’s video call feature, your

account may have been vulnerable to being

hacked.

A bug in both the Android and iOS versions of

WhatsApp could have let hackers intercept your

private calls and take over your app.

The flaw was discovered by Google researcher

Natalie Silvanovich, who subsequently reported it

to WhatsApp.

Thankfully, WhatsApp has now fixed the flaw - and

says that it hasn’t found any evidence that hackers

used the exploit.


WhatsApp said: “WhatsApp cares deeply about

the security of our users.

“We routinely engage with security researchers

from around the world to ensure WhatsApp

remains safe and reliable.

“We promptly issued a fix to the latest version of

WhatsApp to resolve this issue.”
