TRA says a new version of WhatsApp and WhatsApp Business has been released to address a cybersecurity issue.

The UAE’s Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) has issued an urgent warning to Apple iPhone users to update their messaging app WhatsApp to avoid serious cybersecurity issues.

The TRA said in a statement on Thursday: “A new version of WhatsApp and WhatsApp Business for iOS was released to fix vulnerabilities that could allow the execution of malicious code, memory corruption and crashes. Another vulnerability could permit Siri to interact with WhatsApp even after the phone was locked.

“We advise users to update the affected apps to version 2.20.111 or newer through the AppStore.”
