WhatsApp Urges Users to Update their app.

WhatsApp users have been urged to update their app immediately



Whatsapp users have been urged to update their app immediately, after it was hit by one of the worst security bugs ever seen.


When was the last time that you updated WhatsApp on your iPhones or Android smartphones? If you have been ignoring the warning signs of a software update on your smartphone for weeks due to your endless household chores or busy work schedule, now might be the right time to pause everything and update WhatsApp on your smartphones. If you are wondering why? Answer is 

-WhatsApp has detected a bug on its platform that allows malicious actors to install spyware on your smartphone using a single WhatsApp call.

The technology to use the attack appears to have been created by an Israeli company that sells technology exploits to governments, allowing them to spy on citizens. It is not clear how prevalent the attack was but it appears to have already been used.

The versions of WhatsApp that have been affected by the issue include -- WhatsApp for Android v2.19.134 and before, WhatsApp Business for Android v2.19.44 and before, WhatsApp for iOS v2.19.51 and before, WhatsApp Business for iOS v2.19.51 and before, WhatsApp for Windows Phone v2.18.348 and before, and WhatsApp for Tizen v2.18.15 and before.

 Whatsapp has began rolling out an update to secure its servers last Friday and a security patch to its customers on Monday.

Update your WhatsApp in latest version to stay safe from such attacks.
