Facebook under fire for WhatsApp security backdoor

January 13, 2017

A security researcher has discovered a vulnerability in the way WhatsApp implements encryption, raising concerns that it will be exploited by governments to spy on users.


Facebook has come under fire for a serious vulnerability in WhatsApp’s end-to-end encryption system, which puts users under the risk of surveillance.


The criticism and warning comes after a security researcher has found a security backdoor in the Facebook-owned WhatsApp messaging service that could provide access to messages, reports the Guardian.


Security researchers said the vulnerability underlines the importance of encryption key management and expressed concerns about the potential for governments and others to exploit the vulnerability, while privacy groups said the vulnerability is a threat to freedom of speech.
