In an apparent reaction to the security vulnerabilities demonstrated by The H’s associates at heise Security, the company behind WhatsApp Messenger is taking action against the developers of a library of functions for using the WhatsApp service via a PC. The developers have responded by removing the source code from the web.
However, the popular texting alternative WhatsApp still has a major security problem. Attackers can compromise other users’ accounts with relative ease, and send and receive messages from another user’s account. In this respect nothing has changed – heise Security was able to successfully repeat its test this morning (Tuesday).
