It was reported today from WhatsApp, a subsidiary of Facebook, that there was a recent breach of security.
Interestingly, they have reason to believe the attacker was a foreign government. They also have reason to believe the attack targeted human rights activists.
The Dept. of Justice has been notified and asked for aiding in the investigation.
Honestly if you want secure messaging you should probably be using Signal, this isn’t the first time I’ve heard about WhatsApp being compromised.

You can be assured that there are powerful, capable forces looking to discover and exploit any vulnerabilities in these apps. Signal is just different software and has the potential to contain undiscovered vulnerabilities. Developing and weaponizing exploits takes some time ( unless the developers already know about undisclosed vulnerabilities and are abusing them). No software remains foolproof forever.
