Do not forward Good Morning or Festive GIF images to your friends.
Update your application at all times to fix system bugs and vulnerabilities.

请不要再向朋友转发早安或佳节GIF 图像。

Security researcher spotted a loophole in Facebook-owned app Whatsapp that allows hackers to give special access to your device allowing them to steal all data just by a whatsapp malicious GIF file.


There are various ways to identify if you have been infected by this latest WhatsApp malicious GIF virus is that you will have the following things;
Your memory will be corrupt.
Apps will start crashing.


How can you get infected with Whatsapp Malicious GIF Virus?
If a hacker sends it a Malicious GIF to your WhatsApp, and you open it, it will create a path for a hacker to get into your smartphone and steal whatever they wish to.


Only Android users are at the risk because of Whatsapp Malicious GIF virus. Fortunately, iOS users are safe from this virus.


The researcher has already notified Facebook of this shortcoming, and the company has since fixed the issue. To protect yourself against the exploit, you should download the latest version of the app.


“Facebook acknowledged and patched it officially in WhatsApp version 2.19.244. WhatsApp users, please do update to latest WhatsApp version (2.19.244 or above) to get rid of this bug,” the researcher urged users in his blog post.

Facebook承认并在WhatsApp版本2.19.244中对其进行了正式修补。 研究人员在其博客中呼吁WhatsApp用户,请更新到最新的WhatsApp版本(2.19.244或更高版本)以消除此错误.。

This is hardly the first time WhatsApp has dealt with potentially harmful flaws in its software.

对于WhatsApp而言, 这并不是第一次解决其软件中潜在有害的漏洞。

Earlier this year, the Financial Times reported a vulnerability in the messaging app allowed attackers to slip in spyware on users’ devices. WhatsApp rushed to fix the issue, but did not clarify how many users were affected by this loophole.

今年早些时候,《金融时报》报道了该消息应用程序中的一个漏洞,攻击者可以利用该漏洞在用户设备上窃听间谍软件。 WhatsApp急于解决此问题,但未阐明有多少用户受到此漏洞的影响。

More recently, researchers found a kink in WhatsApp that made it possible to manipulate or spoof messages.


It remains unclear if attackers were able to exploit the double-free vulnerability in the wild, but we’ve reached out to Facebook for a clarification, and will update this piece accordingly if we hear back.

目前尚不清楚黑客是否能够在野外利用双重释放漏洞,但我们已经联系 Facebook 进行澄清,如果我们收到回复,我们将相应地更新这篇文章。
