WhatsApp said that with new changes, which it will continue to evaluate, "will help keep WhatsApp the way it was created to be: a private messaging app".
Combined with other flaws, the vulnerability allows cyber criminals to impersonate you by taking control of your WhatsApp account.
The Facebook-owned company says it is aware of the flaw but has no plans to patch the problem as the exploited vulnerability forms a core part of the app's design. WhatsApp users who have been questioning the content of comments from friends and family could be victims of a malicious actor, according to research released by Check Point.
Hackers could use the bug to alter the text sent in someone else's reply to a group chat, essentially "putting words in their mouth", the group said. "In India - where people forward more messages, photos, and videos than any other country in the world - we'll also test a lower limit of 5 chats at once and we'll remove the quick forward button next to media messages", WhatsApp had written in the blogpost.
By doing this, it would be possible to incriminate a person or close a fraudulent deal, for example.
CheckPoint found hackers can insert themselves into the code between the two to retrieve and send fake messages from within the service.
