Information Security Awareness: WhatsApp Users May Wish to Uninstall Now

A vulnerability in WhatsApp—Facebook's encrypted messaging app for mobile devices—is being actively exploited to install spyware on mobile phones. Attackers have infected targeted devices by calling the mobile numbers; users did not even have to answer the call. A fix for end-users was released on Monday, May 13. The vulnerability affects both Android and iOS devices. If you or your relatives are actively using WhatsApp, update to the latest version; otherwise, uninstall it.
