WhatsApp released a statement this week that said it had fixed a critical vulnerability found by the developer in recent versions of the app. According to the company, the loophole allowed attackers to run malicious code on the platform after initiating a video call.

Although it fixed the issue in a new update, it is possible that this issue is present in older versions of WhatsApp. This breach was identified as CVE-2022-36934 scoring 9.8 points on a scale of 10 that considers different levels of security risk.

As reinforced by Meta (ex-Facebook), the recommendation is that all users access the application store of the operating system (Android and iOS) and update the application to the current version in both the common and business versions of the messenger, with this the problem will be solved by preventing third parties from hacking the account.

According to information, the issue affects the following versions:

  • WhatsApp for Android before v2.22.16.12
  • WhatsApp Business for Android before v2.22.16.12
  • WhatsApp for iOS before v2.22.16.12
  • WhatsApp Business for iOS before v2.22.16.12
