An IT security company wants to discover a security flaw in WhatsApp. There is no fundamental problem.

Instant Messaging: Chat histories on WhatsApp can be manipulated

Security experts discovered a vulnerability in WhatsApp messenger. Through gap, messages can be manipulated, Israeli security company checkpoint informed. Both single and group chats are affected. Hackers could strike three ways: change messages that have already been sent, publish messages to a group by issuing as a member, and send a message to a single person and make it look like a group message.

Checkpoint pointed to danger of invasion of election campaigns. In this respect, service plays an "increasingly central role". Lastly, re were several Lynch murders in India by citizens who were brought up by rumors spread by WhatsApp.

On findings of checkpoint, WhatsApp stated that it had checked this problem. It is similar to trying to change content of a sent email afterwards.

WhatsApp is "very serious" about challenge that false information could spread rapidly.
