New WhatsApp video security exploit

A new WhatsApp security vulnerability leaves users' files and messages exposed to access from attackers.

Facebook issued a security advisory last week which warned WhatsApp Messenger users that a modified MP4 video file could be used to initiate remote code execution (RCE) and denial of service (DoS) attacks.

“A stack-based buffer overflow could be triggered in WhatsApp by sending a specially crafted MP4 file to a WhatsApp user," the advisory stated.
