WhatsApp is now prey to hackers courtesy of a security vulnerability that targets victims using a specially-crafted MP4 file.
The security flaw only affects older versions of the social media app for Android and iPhone and gives hackers a cyberattack vector.
Users should guard against downloading any MP4 file sent to them on WhatsApp as hackers are liable to use the flaw to initiate a snooping attack on both Android and iOS devices.
The specially-made MP4 file triggers the Remote Code Execution (RCE) and Denial of Service (DOS) cyber attack. Users are advised to update their WhatsApp to avoid being targets.
