WhatsApp was hack by injecting spyware from unknown calls

Accepting a simple voice call might lead you to get affected by the so called alleged Israeli spyware. Users of the messaging app are urged to update immediately their WhatsApp on their smartphone because of the security threat that hackers might take over your phone by simply answering a phone call.

The Facebook-owned messaging service has discovered recently that hackers could install spyware through an infected WhatsApp voice call. The spyware is capable of infecting through calls, texts, and other data or activating phone's camera. 

Financial Times reported an alleged Israeli spyware was developed to exploit WhatsApp by injecting a malware onto targeted phones.
