A major flaw with WhatsApp has been discovered that allows people to wreak havoc in group chats and crash the messaging app for all members.
Researchers at Check Point who found the vulnerabilty showed how people can send a destructive group chat message that causes a complete crash of the entire WhatsApp application for all members of the group. The only way to get back into Whatsapp is to completely reinstall it and even then all of your group chats will be deleted forever. Its a pretty nasty but thankfully WhatsApp have fixed the issue.
In order to be protected please make sure you are running the latest version of Whatsapp.
Thank you and please let me know if you need anything at all.
