WhatsApp has been hacked – this is not fake news

Urgently update your WhatsApp. The App was hacked and attackers installed sophisticated spyware on an unknown number of people’s smartphones.

The Facebook subsidiary, which has 1.5 billion users, said an advanced cyber actor infected an unknown number of people’s devices with the malware, which it said it discovered in early May.

The attackers were able to install the surveillance technology by phoning the target through WhatsApp’s call functionality, giving them access to information including location data and private messages.

We urge you to immediately update your WhatsApp to the latest version and keep your mobile operating system up to date as well.
