WhatsApp group chat crash bug discovered:

Check Point’s security researchers have said that they have discovered a serious defect in WhatsApp. According to them, this loophole will aid a bad actor to deliver a destructive group chat message that produces fast and total crash of the full app for all group chat members.

Check Point’s Head of Product Vulnerability Research, Oded Vanunu had this to say, “Because WhatsApp is one of the world’s leading communication channels for consumers, businesses and government agencies, the ability to stop people using WhatsApp and delete valuable information from group chats is a powerful weapon for bad actors. All WhatsApp users should update to the latest version of the app to protect themselves against this possible attack.”
