WhatsApp Exploit Allowed Hackers To Snoop, Users Urged To Update App

Spyware crafted by an "advanced cyber actor" infected multiple targeted mobile phones through the popular WhatsApp communications program without any user intervention through in-app voice calls, the company said. The Financial Times identified the actor as Israel's NSO Group, and a WhatsApp spokesman later said "we're certainly not refuting any of the coverage you've seen." WhatsApp says it fixed the security hole through a server-side fix on May 10, and released patched Android and iOS apps on Monday. Users are urged to update their apps.
