Researchers have reported a vulnerability in WhatsApp desktop client for iPhones which puts victim's files—on their computers—at risk.
How does it work?
The desktop platform of WhatsApp has more than 1.5 billion monthly active users.
Explaining further, Weizman said, "Electron is a cool platform that lets you create 'native' applications using standard web features. This makes things super easy for a lot of big companies since it allows them to have one source code for both their web applications and native desktop applications. Electron constantly updates along with the platform it is based on Chromium."
