News about WhatsApp Data being Leaked

Nearly 500 million WhatsApp user phone numbers are available for purchase on the hacker community forum.

It was recently revealed that hackers managed to steal the personal information of 500 million active WhatsApp users. This claim was first made by Cybernews, which said that hackers were ready to offer data for purchase.

The announcement raised questions about WhatsApp's end-to-end encryption, which protects private communications from data leaks.

With almost two billion active users around the world, WhatsApp is the undisputed leader in the instant messaging market. The phone numbers of a quarter of WhatsApp users have been stolen.

According to the seller, the database is current for 2022. Cybernews asked the provider for a test sample of 1,097 user numbers from the UK and 817 from the US. The journalists found that all were registered with WhatsApp.

However, the seller declined to specify exactly how the database was collected, saying only that the hackers have "their own strategy" for collecting data.

Stolen phone numbers can be used for identity theft, phishing, and other fraudulent activities.

In response to the allegations, a WhatsApp spokesperson said that the allegation written by Cybernews is based on unsubstantiated screenshots and that there is no evidence of a WhatsApp data leak.

In this regard, the editor-in-chief of Cybernews, Jurgita Lapenyte, also tweeted that there is no evidence that WhatsApp has been hacked. A leak may be a scrape, but that doesn't make it any less dangerous for affected users.
