The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) has asked WhatsApp to submit the details of the recent spyware attack and of any remedial action taken. Post receiving the details, the government will decide whether or not to issue an advisory to officials who widely use the messaging application.

The MeitY has also asked WhatsApp if users in India have been compromised and how many.

As per industry sources, the spyware was developed by an Israeli cyber intelligence group that exploited a vulnerability in the WhatsApp calling function to inject a spyware into a user’s phone, thus putting all information on the device at risk. Following this the company has asked users to update the app to the latest version to fix the issue.
