Again a new whatsapp vulnerability strike

Whatsapp in November patch two new critical vulnerabilities in iOs.

A use-after-free in a logging library in WhatsApp for iOS prior to v2.20.111 and WhatsApp Business for iOS prior to v2.20.111 could have resulted in memory corruption, crashes and potentially code execution. This could have happened only if several events occurred together in sequence, including receiving an animated sticker while placing a WhatsApp video call on hold.


Improper authorization of the Screen Lock feature in WhatsApp and WhatsApp Business for iOS prior to v2.20.100 could have permitted use of Siri to interact with the WhatsApp application even after the phone was locked.
