Terrible security flaw in WhatsApp!
Two serious security flaws have been discovered in WhatsApp. By exploiting the flaws, cybercriminals can remotely take over WhatsApp users' accounts at will. The instant messaging service quickly fixed the errors after learning about it. However, due to the bugs remaining in the old version, users can fall under the cyber attack at any time.
It is known that by exploiting the flaws in the Android and iOS versions of WhatsApp, hackers can send video files anonymously while talking on video calls. Hackers gain control of the user's phone by opening malicious coded files. As a result, hackers can take control of WhatsApp accounts in addition to collecting mobile phone information.
The critical flaws were first identified by members of WhatsApp's internal security team. According to WhatsApp, exploiting the flaws named CVE-2022-36934 and CVE-2022-27492 allows cyber attacks to be carried out by adding code to video files. In addition to publishing warnings on their website, they have requested to use the updated version as soon as possible.
