In other news, Facebook has launched a dedicated web page highlighting all WhatsApp-related vulnerabilities and security issues. This web page will include all the past and present security bugs on WhatsApp. It means that interested users can take a look at newly identified and patched bugs at the same place. Facebook regularly publishes patch notes regarding the bugs on the WhatsApp listing page on Apple App Store and Google Play Store. However, the company does not share detail regarding the patched security bugs in these patch notes. Instead, the company describes most of these patch notes as ‘security fixes’.
