Durov believes that Whatsapp is definitely not a secure means of communication and information storage. Because hackers and government officials can easily access this information, he says.
The founder of Telegram is confident that the new security holes in Facebook’s messaging application will use them to violate the rights of journalists and human rights defenders.
A major security vulnerability has emerged
According to Durov, the United States will transfer this information to the intelligence services of other countries. A few days ago, a new critical vulnerability was discovered in both Android and iOS versions of WhatsApp.
Using this serious vulnerability, hackers could install malicious software on the target’s device using a special MP4 file, as well as capture sensitive data and spy on them. However, Facebook recently announced that this vulnerability has been resolved.
