WhatsApp Hack – level 3
Facebook is suing an Israeli company, NSO Group, for hacking 1,400 WhatsApp users in 20 countries.
Many of the users were journalists, human rights activists and government officials. Allegedly, NSO used its own software to get to people’s messages.
Facebook, which owns WhatsApp, asked its users to update their applications to make access to their phones more difficult for hackers. WhatsApp also added new protections to the system and updated the application.
NSO does not agree with the claims. It says that it provides technologies to governments to help them fight terrorism and crime. It also says that it has helped to save thousands of lives in the past.
Difficult words: allegedly (it is said that), claim (something what is said and believed to be true), provide (to give for use).
