Indian users affected by WhatsApp hacking

At least two dozen WhatsApp users in India, including human rights activists and journalists, were allegedly snooped on using Israeli spyware Pegasus, Indian Express reports. Seventeen such individuals confirmed being alerted by WhatsApp and Canada-based Citizen Lab, which is assisting the messaging app trace the breaches. The Facebook-owned app has sued Pegasus maker NSO Group, but the tech firm said it only licenses its product to government agencies to combat terrorism. India has asked WhatsApp to explain the breach amid the furore even as the app announced a new fingerprint security feature for Android phones.
