As of late, a specialist passing by the name ‘Stirred’ found a helplessness in WhatsApp which stems from the twofold free bug in the application. For the individuals who don’t have a clue about, a twofold free bug is a memory debasement issue that can crash applications and clear a path for programmers by opening an adventure vector to take information. The programmer should simply adjust a GIF to make it pernicious, send it to the person in question and hang tight for him/her to open the WhatsApp exhibition.
The analyst distributed the specialized review on GitHub where he clarifies that the issue sits in the view execution of WhatsApp display.
The adventure, be that as it may, doesn’t influence all adaptations of WhatsApp and Android. The analyst had this to state in his blog entry:
The adventure functions admirably for Android 8.1 and 9.0, yet doesn’t work for Android 8.0 and beneath, in the more established Android forms, twofold free could in any case be activated. In any case, the application just crashes before arriving at the point that we could control the PC register.
Facebook recognized and fixed it authoritatively in WhatsApp form 2.19.244. WhatsApp clients, kindly update to the most recent WhatsApp rendition (2.19.244 or above) to dispose of this bug.
On the off chance that we think back, this isn’t the first occasion when we have seen WhatsApp’s destructive imperfections surface. Prior this year, a WhatsApp weakness that enabled programmers to slip spyware in the client gadget was accounted for. Before that in October 2018, Google’s task zero bug-chasing group detailed a WhatsApp’s weakness that enabled programmers to hold onto a record by simply putting a video call.
