CBS News reveals that WhatsApp has filed a complaint against the technology company NSO for launching a cyberattack. Last month the social messaging company asked users to update the application when it discovered vulnerabilities in its video-calling feature. Ian Sherr remarks that WhatsApp and similar services are reportedly being used to target people. According to him, the company is transparent because it does not want to earn a bad reputation.
Nonetheless, social media companies are trying hard to discourage such activities. For example, Twitter has banned all types of political advertisements. Co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey does not want political leaders to use the platform for political gains.
