  • WhatsApp spyware vulnerability

    Posted on May 14th, 2019 at 03:13 Kirsty Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    WhatsApp users are being urged to update their apps, to address a vulnerability discovered recently. If you have family members using this platform, I trust you’ll encourage them to make sure they’re up-to-date too.

    From theguardian.com:

    Attackers could transmit the malicious code to a target’s device by calling the user and infecting the call whether or not the recipient answered the call. Logs of the incoming calls were often erased, according to the report.
