WhatsApp Spyware Attack: What You Need to Know to Stay Safe?

In May 2019, it was revealed that a WhatsApp spyware attack had been used to target human rights activists and journalists. The spyware, known as Pegasus, was developed by an Israeli cyber intelligence company called NSO Group and was able to infect a user's device with just a missed voice call.

The spyware attack exploited a vulnerability in the WhatsApp
application, which allowed the attackers to remotely install the

spyware on a target's device. Once installed, the spyware was able to steal sensitive information from the user's device, including text messages, photos, and location data.

This spyware attack was a wake-up call for WhatsApp users around the world. It highlighted the importance of maintaining the security of your digital devices and taking steps to protect your personal information from prying eyes.
