Whatsapp Video Call

A stern warning has been issued to users not to answer video calls from strangers as it is vulnerable to video chat hack. Well, there are some elements of truth in this but in a different context.

A bug in both the Android and iOS versions of WhatsApp could have let hackers intercept your private calls and take over your app

If you use WhatsApp’s video call feature, your account may have been vulnerable to being hacked.

The flaw was discovered by researcher Natalie Silvanovich, who subsequently reported it to WhatsApp.

Thankfully, WhatsApp has now fixed the flaw – and says that it hasn’t found any evidence that hackers used the exploit.

WhatsApp said:

“WhatsApp cares deeply about the security of our users.

“We routinely engage with security researchers from around the world to ensure WhatsApp remains safe and reliable.

“We promptly issued a fix to the latest version of WhatsApp to resolve this issue.”

Was your account affected?
Thankfully, it’s very unlikely that your account was affected.

WhatsApp says it has found no evidence that the flaw was abused by any hackers.

If WhatsApp does discover that it has been used by hackers, affected users should be contacted.
