Tech giants unite to help WhatsApp in a hacking incident

Many major tech companies have come to support WhatsApp as messaging apps fight a legal battle with Israeli intelligence. Facebook-owned WhatsApp has accused the Israeli NSO group of exploiting a private vulnerability to hack the phones of about 1,400 WhatsApp users.

WhatsApp claims that NSO, which develops spyware for nation-state customers, spies on customers to find out more about hacking and sued the company in October 2019. The attack worked by exploiting a voice call security bug that allowed the NSO to infect the device with spyware simply by sending a voice call. The victim didn’t even have to respond.
