Users were warned about the threat of surveillance via WhatsApp




Owners of smartphones with the Android operating system that use the WhatsApp messenger version up to 2.21.4.18 are exposed to the threat of remote hacking. This was reported by experts of the company Census IT Security Works.





According to experts, this flaw in the exchange of confidential data between users in versions up to 2.21.4.18 of WhatsApp for Android helps attackers to gain remote access to the user's correspondence, interfere in a dialogue between two people in order to deceive or start spying on a person.

Users who use this version of the system were advised to update the app to version 2.21.4.18 or higher.

Earlier, cybersecurity researchers learned that attackers, knowing the phone number of the alleged victim, can remotely deactivate the account on the user's device. In this case, you will not be able to return access to your account, even with two-factor authentication.
