A new vulnerable found in WhatsApp which allow hackers to hack WhatsApp account.

How does this trick works?

  • First hacker setup WhatApp on a new phone using the target’s phone number
  • From WhatsApp, the hacker calls up the phone number on the target’s phone and provides the requisite PIN code to authenticate the account.
  • If the hacker has access to the phone, then he can answer the phone call and take the PIN code
  • Anyone can answer the WhatsApp call without unlocking the screen on the phone, even if lockscreen feature is enabled.
  • This trick bypasses the security password mechanism that is required to access key phone features.
  • Especially on iPhones configured with Siri authentication for lockscreen are even more vulnerable to access without any Pin, as contact details will be readily available for access through Siri’s settings.
  • In other way if the person attempting to steal WhatsApp account information does not have the target’s phone number, he/she can still get it easily by calling their own number from target’s phone via Siri.
