WhatsApp, NVIDIA users urged to update software
Security flaws are prompting WhatsApp and NVIDIA to roll out updates.Posted — Updated
Two recently discovered security flaws are prompting WhatsApp and NVIDIA users to update their software.
NVIDIA is a computer game company that designs graphics processing units for gaming and professional markets as well as units for the mobile computing and automotive market.
Facebook-owned messaging service WhatsApp says a vulnerability in its app allows hackers to install spyware on a phone without the user knowing it. A company spokesman told the Associated Press that the spyware could be delivered through missed phone calls on WhatsApp's voice-calling function. That spyware could give hackers access to your phone's features.
WhatsApp is encouraging users to update to the latest version of the app and make sure your device's security patches are up to date.
