(14 May 2019) Spyware crafted by a sophisticated group of hackers-for-hire took advantage of a flaw in the popular WhatsApp communications program to remotely hijack dozens of phones, the company said late Monday.The Financial Times identified the actor as Israel's NSO Group, and WhatsApp all but confirmed the identification, describing hackers as "a private company that has been known to work with governments to deliver spyware." A spokesman for the Facebook subsidiary later said: "We're certainly not refuting any of the coverage you've seen."The malware was able to penetrate phones through missed calls alone via the app's voice calling function, the spokesman said. An unknown number of people - an amount in the dozens at least would not be inaccurate - were infected with the malware, which the company discovered in early May, said the spokesman, who was not authorized to be quoted by name.The spokesman said the flaw was discovered while the team was putting some additional security enhancements in for voice calls.WhatsApp, which has more than 1.5 billion users, immediately contacted Citizen Lab and human rights groups, quickly fixed the issue and pushed out a patch. He said WhatsApp also provided information to US law enforcement officials to assist in their investigations.Find out more about AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/HowWeWork Twitter: https://twitter.com/AP_Archive Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/APArchives Google+: https://plus.google.com/b/10201102858...
