WhatsApp fixes Israeli spyware breach

Users of the messaging service WhatsApp are being urged to immediately update to the latest version of the app.

WhatsApp, which is owned by Facebook, released the update to fix a critical vulnerability that allowed Israeli spyware to be installed on a user’s smartphone simply by ringing it up.

“The malicious code, developed by the secretive Israeli company NSO Group, could be transmitted even if users did not answer their phones, and the calls often disappeared from call logs,” according to the Financial Times.
