General News WhatsApp fixes bug on desktop that allowed access to your personal files

About a month ago, WhatsApp fixed a bug on its desktop application that allowed attackers to read files from the targeted user’s computer. Now, new information suggests that the bug may have affected who used WhatsApp’s desktop application for Mac or Windows. Further, the bug has likely affected people who paired the desktop application with an iPhone.

The post was published by security firm PerimeterX. Gal Weizman, the company’s security researcher, found vulnerabilities in the app’s Content Security Policy (CSP). The vulnerability could be exploited to send manipulated messaged and links using Cross-Site Scripting (XSS).
