WhatsApp Web is a computer based extension of the WhatsApp account on your phone. It lets users access their messages in Chrome, bringing one of the world's largest messaging platforms to the desktop.

WhatsApp has already responded to the alert and has deployed an update to its desktop client and Check Point urges all users to update their software immediately. There are no indications to date that the flaw has been exploited actively in the wild.
