Hacking, AppSec, and Bug Bounty newsletter
2018-10-10 | Natalie’s WhatsApp bug, More debates on the Bloomberg Chinese Microchip stories, and What are the biggest cybersecurity trends in 2018
Wednesday, October 10
Natalie Silvanovich discovered a WhatsApp vulnerability where answering a call from an attacker could completely compromise the iOS or Android client.
TWEET OF THE DAY
It would be great to move InfoSec norms closer to aviation safety, where close-calls are disclosed in a standard, centralized manner and discussed rationally by experts who extract lessons from the mistakes of others. However, we currently don't live in that world. (1/6) - @alexstamos
