The Computer Emergency Response Team-India (CERT-In) has issued an advisory for WhatsApp users against a vulnerability that can compromise their individual accounts without seeking permissions.

CERT-In has called the severity of the threat, being spread by an MP4 file, as “high.”

As per the cyber security agency, a vulnerability has been reported in WhatsApp which could be exploited by a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the target system.
