India’s cyber-security agency CERT-In on Saturday expressed concern over the detection of certain vulnerabilities in the social-media networking app- WhatsApp for both Android and iOS which could lead to a possible breach of sensitive information.
Issuing a ‘high severity rating’ advisory, the Indian Computer Emergency Response Team cautioned users sharing that a vulnerability had been detected in software that has “WhatsApp and WhatsApp Business for Android before v188.8.131.52 and WhatsApp and WhatsApp Business for iOS before v2.21.32.”
Multiple vulnerabilities are reported in WhatsApp applications which could allow a foreign attacker to execute arbitrary code or access sensitive information on a targeted system,” the advisory said.
“Successful exploitation of those vulnerabilities could allow the attacker to execute arbitrary code or access sensitive information on a targeted system,” it added.
According to CERT-In, the vulnerabilities were a result of an alleged “cache configuration issue and missing bounds check within the audio decoding pipeline” within the WhatsApp applications.
The agency has urged all users to right away update the newest version of WhatsApp from the Google Play Store or iOS App Store to counter the vulnerability threat.
