Facebook’s Sir Nick Clegg criticised over WhatsApp security

Mr Bezos’ phone was hacked in May 2018 after he received a WhatsApp message loaded with malware.

But in an interview with the BBC, Sir Nick said WhatsApp’s encrypted messages could “not be hacked into”.

And he failed to acknowledge security flaws in the app that had let hackers compromise their target’s smartphones.

“Nobody tell Nick Clegg about how exploits work,” joked cyber-security researcher Kevin Beaumont.
