Whatsapp hack

This is a pretty brutal hack--apparently all it required was to dial a user's phone--the phone didn't even have to be answered.

All I can say is that it's a good thing people close to the president aren't using whatsapp to conduct their business.  Oh, wait........

Never mind.

Whatsapp is one of the most insecure apps I know off.
Why is it people love to believe and hate to know?
