WhatsApp is the most used popular messaging apps in the world with over 1.5 billion active user base which registers over 65 billion messages regularly. Even with WhatsApp calls being completely encrypted this does not address it un-hackable.

Earlier this year Financial Times informed that there is a possibility that WhatsApp messages can be read by others by hacking it. Therefore as soon as the news was given to WhatsApp it hurried to fix the issue but gave no reports that the issue which was stated was fixed.

But Lately, researchers discovered a kink in WhatsApp that created it potential to manipulate or spoof messages. The kink is making it convenient for the hacker to obtain the files and messages on your phone by sending just a malicious GIF.

What does that malicious GIF do?

The terms indicate a memory exploitation oddity that could break an app, or more dangerous ⁠it can initiate a misuse vector that enables the hackers to get passage to your device. Solely it needs to execute the attack is to craft an ill-disposed GIF and fool a user towards loading it.

The deed appears to attack essentially on Android devices. To which Awakened addresses “The exploit works well for Android 8.1 and 9.0, but does not work for Android 8.0 and below whereas In the older Android versions, double-free could still be triggered. However, the app just crashes before reaching the point that we could control the PC register.”

According to the reports, Facebook had fixed the loophole and the researcher told and asked the WhatsApp users to “Facebook acknowledged and patched it officially in WhatsApp version 2.19.244. WhatsApp users, please do update to the latest WhatsApp version (2.19.244 or above) to get rid of this bug,”.

Also, there is another app known as Viber via the web which impersonates Google Play

What does it do?
