Title: WhatsApp image filter error may have allowed hackers to gain access to your account

description: The popularity of WhatsApp has always been attributed to end-to-end encryption.
WhatsApp has been hugely popular for many years. Interest in communicator has grown significantly in recent years. It turns out, however, that not everything works as it should. Some time ago, a new vulnerability was reported that could have been exploited by hackers to target WhatsApp users.

The most recent WhatsApp bug could have allowed hackers to gain access to the user's account. The image filtering feature that the company introduced for both the standard and business WhatsApp Android apps brought this bug back (CVE-2020-1910) in February with the v2.21.1.13 update. By taking advantage of this vulnerability, attackers can easily attack users by sending a malicious image that they can later use after using an image filter.

Has the problem been resolved? It turns out that WhatsApp has released a patch to fix the security bug of this image filter. What was fixed? The company improved its security layers by adding two new security checks at the source and image filtering to prevent further vulnerabilities. We also know that the company also shared details of this security bug on its security advisor page. Good to see the company fixed this issue before any major mishap. Nobody likes trouble. WhatsApp users will be able to use it very easily again. However, it is worth being very careful when uploading and downloading attachments - this applies to every application that we use mobile and stationary.
