A vulnerability in WhatsApp allows spyware access on iOS

The code developed by NSO Group, was introduced on mobile devices according to the Financial Times media through the calls and video calls of the app itself and the user evidently did not know about it since even with a missed call it is installed and that is spyware detected can even access our iPhone even without answering the call. Really a major security flaw that WhatsApp itself was responsible for confirming a few hours ago in an official statement:

This attack has all the signs of being orchestrated by a private company which is already known for working with governments to deploy spyware which takes over the functions of mobile operating systems. We have reported the event to a number of human rights organizations to work together and notify users of this attack.

Obviously the solution to this attack is the update that was launched a day ago and which the company encourages us to have an iOS or Android device. It seems that The security flaw was neutralized by WhatsApp engineers last Monday with the latest version that was released from the app of messaging so it is important to install it. Last week WhatsApp informed the US Department of Justice about this new vulnerability found and now it seems that it is already solved.
