WhatsApp will now globally limit message 'forwards' to five chats at a time, a practice it had introduced in India in July last year to crack down on spread of rumours and fake news through its platform.
In an update to its blog Monday, WhatsApp said the move will help keep "WhatsApp focused on private messaging with close contacts".
"WhatsApp carefully evaluated this test and listened to user feedback over a six-month period. The forward limit significantly reduced forwarded messages around the world," it said.
It added that "starting today, all users on the latest versions of WhatsApp can now forward to only five chats at once..."
The messaging platform -- which counts India, Brazil and Indonesia among its major markets -- said it will continue to listen to user feedback on their experience, and "over time, look for new ways of addressing viral content".
A WhatsApp spokesperson told PTI that during the test period, the company saw a 25% reduction of forwarded messages being shared on WhatsApp.
"We believe this is a reasonable number to reach close friends, while helping prevent abuse," the spokesperson added.
The move comes at a time when governments and regulators across the world are looking at effective ways to curb the spread of fake messages through digital platforms.
In India, the Facebook-owned company had faced flak from the government after a series of mob-lynching incidents, triggered by rumours circulating on WhatsApp, claimed lives.
Under pressure to stop rumours and fake news, WhatsApp had last year, restricted forwarding messages to five chats at once as well as removed the quick forward button for media messages in India - a market that has over 200 million WhatsApp users.
In fact, the Indian government - through proposed changes in IT rules - is seeking to make social media platforms more accountable by mandating them to introduce tools that can identify and disable "unlawful content".
One of the amendments being mulled in the IT intermediary rules (meant for online and social media platforms) will require them to enable tracing out of such originators of information as needed by government agencies that are legally authorised.
WhatsApp, as part of its efforts, had also brought out full-page advertisements as well as television and radio campaigns offering tips to users on how to spot misinformation.
However, the company has so far, resisted the government's demand for identifying message originators, arguing that such a move would undermine the end-to-end encryption and the private nature of the platform, creating potential for serious misuse.

Lok Sabha elections 2019: WhatsApp unveils 'Checkpoint Tipline' feature to tackle fake news
People in India can submit misinformation or rumours they receive to the Checkpoint Tipline on WhatsApp (+91-9643-000-888).

NEW DELHI: WhatsApp Tuesday unveiled its 'Checkpoint Tipline', where people can check the authenticity of information received as the messaging giant looks to crack down on fake news ahead of the general election in the country.
"Launched by PROTO, an India-based media skilling startup, this tipline will help create a database of rumours to study misinformation during elections for Checkpoint - a research project commissioned and technically assisted by WhatsApp," the Facebook-owned company said in a statement.

It added that starting Tuesday, people in India can submit misinformation or rumours they receive to the Checkpoint Tipline on WhatsApp (+91-9643-000-888).



Once a WhatsApp user shares a suspicious message with the tipline, PROTO's verification centre will seek to respond and inform the user if the claim made in a message shared is verified or not.
"The response will indicate if the information is classified as true, false, misleading, disputed or out of scope and include any other related information that is available," the statement said.

This centre is equipped to review content in the form of pictures, video links or text and will cover English and four regional languages - Hindi, Telugu, Bengali and Malayalam.
PROTO will also look at working with organisations at grassroots level to submit misinformation circulating across different regions in India during the election period.


Facebook, which counts India as one of its largest markets with over 200 million users, had faced flak from the Indian government after a series of mob-lynching incidents, triggered by rumours circulating on WhatsApp, claimed lives last year.
Under pressure to stop rumours and fake news, WhatsApp had last year restricted forwarding messages to five chats at once.
It has also been putting out advertisements in newspapers and running television and radio campaigns offering tips to users on how to spot misinformation.
With ensuing general elections, the Indian government had warned social media platforms of strong action if any attempt was made to influence the country's electoral process through undesirable means.
Interestingly, the Indian government, through proposed changes in IT rules is seeking to make social media platforms more accountable by mandating them to introduce tools that can identify and disable "unlawful content".
One of the amendments being mulled in the IT intermediary rules (meant for online and social media platforms) will require them to enable tracing out of such originators of information as needed by government agencies that are legally authorised.
However, WhatsApp has so far resisted the government's demand for identifying message originators, arguing that such a move would undermine the end-to-end encryption and the private nature of the platform, creating a potential for serious misuse.
In its statement on Tuesday, WhatsApp said Dig Deeper Media and Meedan - which have previously worked on misinformation-related projects around the world - are helping PROTO to develop the verification and research frameworks for India.
Meedan has developed the technology to support the verification of rumours and will maintain the database of such content that have been processed.
To do so, they have expanded their check platform (developed for recent elections in Mexico and France) and integrated it with the WhatsApp Business API, to receive and respond to messages at scale.
"The goal of this project is to study the misinformation phenomenon at scale, natively in WhatsApp.
As more data flows in, we will be able to identify the most susceptible or affected issues, locations, languages, regions, and more," PROTO founders Ritvvij Parrikh and Nasr ul Hadi said.
The verification reports PROTO sends back will encourage grassroots-level "listening posts" to send more signals for analysis, they added.
Following the project, PROTO also plans to submit learnings to the International Center for Journalists to help other organisations learn from the design and operations of this project.
"The research from this initiative will help create a global benchmark for those wishing to tackle misinformation in their own markets," Fergus Bell, founder and CEO, Dig Deeper Media, said.

Read Here Full Info

WhatsApp Hacked, Who Is Affected And What Is The Solution?

WhatsApp Breach Allowed Attackers To Spy On 1.5 Billion WhatsApp Users' Devices. Here's Who Got Infected And The Solution.

The WhatsApp hack topic is on the trending page of every news and technology updates forum since Monday. Not only this but also every news channel rolls out the headline “WhatsApp Hacked”. But people are still confused. They don’t know who got infected? Who is the victim of this breach? So here are some more updates about the breach. And if you’re one of the victims, here is what you need to do.

WhatsApp Hacked: Who did this and how?

So WhatsApp gets exposed to a zero-day flaw. Using this flaw, hackers exploited targeted WhatsApp users and installed spyware on their devices. To do so, all they need is just a phone call. And it doesn’t matter you attend the call or not. We’ve already discussed this in the previous article.

Now let’s talk about who did this breach. According to Financial Times, who reported this news first, the spyware was developed by NSO. The Isreali Cyber Intelligence company is said to be on the back of this attack.

Who Got infected?

We’ve already answered this question in our first report. But let’s elaborate it a little bit. The nature of the attack is different. There is no such number given by WhatsApp authorities or any security researchers. But WhatsApp is used by 1.5 billion people. And the vulnerability is exploitable on all devices. It indirectly means that every WhatsApp user is a victim of this vulnerability. But as we said earlier, this is a targeted attack. The hackers could target specific WhatsApp contacts. So, according to researchers, the attackers must have targeted high profile people.

What’s the solution? How to be safe?

First of all, if you’ve not received any voice call from an unknown number on WhatsApp. Congratulations! You’re not the targeted one. The solution to this issue is provided by Facebook which owns WhatsApp now. A new updated version with security patches has been issued. So quickly update your WhatsApp. You can download the latest version from your official app stores and WhatsApp official site also.

Facebook sues Israel’s NSO on alleged WhatsApp malware hack

Between January 2018 and May of this year, NSO created WhatsApp accounts that it used to send malicious code to targeted devices, according to the lawsuit filed Tuesday in federal court in San Francisco.

WhatsApp and its parent Facebook Inc. sued spyware manufacturer NSO Group, alleging that the Israeli company used malware to hack into the mobile phones of 1,400 people and conduct surveillance.
Between January 2018 and May of this year, NSO created WhatsApp accounts that it used to send malicious code to targeted devices, according to the lawsuit filed Tuesday in federal court in San Francisco. The bogus accounts were created using telephone numbers registered in different countries, including Cyprus, Israel, Brazil, Indonesia, Sweden, and the Netherlands. Between roughly April 29 and May 10, NSO unleashed its code over WhatsApp servers targeting attorneys, journalists, human rights activists, political dissidents, diplomats, and other senior foreign government officials, the suit said.
While NSO was unable to break WhatsApp’s encryption, the company developed its malware to access messages and other communications after they were decrypted on the targeted devices.
NSO Group disputed the allegations and said it would “vigorously fight them.”

“The sole purpose of NSO is to provide technology to licensed government intelligence and law enforcement agencies to help them fight terrorism and serious crime,” the company said in a statement. “Our technology is not designed or licensed for use against human rights activists and journalists. It has helped to save thousands of lives over recent years.”
Human rights groups and researchers have raised alarms for years about NSO Group, which makes mobile device surveillance software that ostensibly helps governments combat “terror and crime.” Activists, however, say governments misuse NSO’s products to target human rights defenders, journalists and critics.
Spyware makers don’t want to accept that their products are used by bad actors, said John Scott-Railton, a senior researcher at the Citizen Lab at the University of Toronto’s Munk School of Global Affairs & Public Policy.

“They want the credibility of having powerful intelligence services as their customers, but at the same time they want to take credit only for the alleged successes while disclaiming responsibility for any of the alleged abuses,” Scott-Railton said. “This lawsuit shatters the illusion of this unaccountable bubble.”
NSO said its technology helps government intelligence and law enforcement agencies thwart major terrorist attacks, bring home abducted children and stop pedophiles and other criminals.
“We consider any other use of our products than to prevent serious crime and terrorism a misuse, which is contractually prohibited,” NSO said in the statement. “We take action if we detect any misuse. This technology is rooted in the protection of human rights – including the right to life, security and bodily integrity – and that’s why we have sought alignment with the U.N. Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, to make sure our products are respecting all fundamental human rights.”

But U.S. whistle-blower Edward Snowden last fall accused the company of helping Saudi Arabia track and kill government critic Jamal Khashoggi.
Banks that arranged the buyout of NSO Group earlier this year have struggled to place the $500 million of debt they had committed to provide for the deal as many investors deemed the company too risky to touch. They were forced to fund the loans with their own cash before being able to offload the debt at a discount of 90 cents on the dollar.
WhatsApp is seeking an injunction against NSO Group that would bar the company from using WhatsApp and Facebook services. In a Washington Post op-ed, WhatsApp Chief Executive Officer Will Cathcart said that leaders of tech firms should, at a minimum, “call for an immediate moratorium on the sale, transfer and use of dangerous spyware.”

The lawsuit comes after WhatsApp revealed a security flaw in May that allowed “an advanced cyber actor” to deliver malware via WhatsApp by placing a call to a user. WhatsApp said it had patched the vulnerability. While it didn’t name NSO Group for exploiting the vulnerability, the Israeli group was widely believed to have been behind it.
Human rights groups, including Amnesty International and Citizen Lab, have accused the NSO Group of selling its malware to oppressive regimes for the purpose of watching dissidents. In December 2018, Saudi dissident Omar Abdulaziz sued NSO Group, claiming the company’s software enabled the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to hack his phone and track his communications with Khashoggi, the murdered Washington Post journalist. NSO has said the Abdulaziz lawsuit makes a number of false claims.

Facebook files lawsuit against spyware maker NSO Group over 2018 WhatsApp attack

Facebook has filed a filed a lawsuit against spyware maker, NSO Group, over it allegedly exploiting a security flaw in WhatsApp that was disclosed in May to target human rights activists.
Facebook and its subsidiary WhatsApp filed the lawsuit today, alleging NSO Group — an Israel-based firm that sells the lawful intercept software marketed as Pegasus — had breached its terms of service.
Facebook is also seeking an injunction to ban NSO employees from using WhatsApp as well as damages under the US Computer Fraud and Abuse Act.

NSO Group first came to public attention in 2016 after researchers from Citizen Lab and mobile security firm Lookout reported that NSO’s Pegasus malware was used to spy on a human rights activist in the United Arab Emirates.
More recently, security researchers at Google found information implicating NSO Group in attacks that exploited a flaw affecting Google Pixel phones, as well as Android smartphones from Samsung, Huawei, LG and Xiaomi.

WhatsApp today messaged around 1,400 users that it believes may have been impacted by the attack it detected in May. Based on new research performed by Citizen Lab, WhatsApp believes at least 100 citizens were targeted.
NSO’s WhatsApp attack was striking because it allowed Pegasus users to simply call a target and send specially crafted packets to the phone to exploit a flaw in the app and install spyware on the target device. Infections happened even if the victim didn’t answer the call.
Facebook rushed out a patch in May after the attack was detected.
According to Citizen Lab, the 100 targets included human rights workers and journalists from Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and North America.

In February, European private equity firm Novalpina Capital acquired NSO Group, promising to bring the company “in full alignment with UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights”.
However, Citizen Lab said the 100 cases it identified occurred after Novalpina Capital acquired NSO Group.
In the lawsuit, WhatsApp accuses NSO Group of reverse engineering the WhatsApp app, which allowed them to “emulate legitimate WhatsApp network traffic in order to transmit malicious code—undetected—to Target Devices over WhatsApp servers.”
“In order to compromise the Target Devices, [NSO Group] routed and caused to be routed malicious code through [WhatsApp’s] servers—including Signaling Servers and Relay Servers— concealed within part of the normal network protocol.

"WhatsApp’s Signaling Servers facilitated the initiation of calls between different devices using the WhatsApp Service. WhatsApp’s Relay Servers facilitated certain data transmissions over the WhatsApp Service. Defendants were not authorized to use [WhatsApp’s] servers in this manner,” the complaint reads.
The complaint says that the 1,400 targets included attorneys, journalists, human rights activists, political dissidents, diplomats, and senior foreign government officials.
The WhatsApp accounts were allegedly created by NSO Group employees using telephone numbers registered in Cyprus, Israel, Brazil, Indonesia, Sweden, and the Netherlands, according to the complaint.
WhatsApp’s complaint also details how the attack was able to install the spyware just by calling the target.

“Defendants used and caused to be used, without authorization, WhatsApp Signaling Servers, in an effort to compromise Target Devices. To avoid the technical restrictions built into WhatsApp Signaling Servers, Defendants formatted call initiation messages containing malicious code to appear like a legitimate call and concealed the code within call settings.
“Disguising the malicious code as call settings enabled Defendants to deliver it to the Target Device and made the malicious code appear as if it originated from WhatsApp Signaling Servers. Once Defendants’ calls were delivered to the Target Device, they injected the malicious code into the memory of the Target Device—even when the Target User did not answer the call.”
NSO Group responded to CSO Online's request for a response with a statement that disputed Facebook's allegations. NSO Group contends that its software is only used to combat serious crimes.

Here's the full statement from NSO Group:
"In the strongest possible terms, we dispute today’s allegations and will vigorously fight them. The sole purpose of NSO is to provide technology to licensed government intelligence and law enforcement agencies to help them fight terrorism and serious crime. Our technology is not designed or licensed for use against human rights activists and journalists. It has helped to save thousands of lives over recent years.
“The truth is that strongly encrypted platforms are often used by pedophile rings, drug kingpins and terrorists to shield their criminal activity. Without sophisticated technologies, the law enforcement agencies meant to keep us all safe face insurmountable hurdles. NSO’s technologies provide proportionate, lawful solutions to this issue.
“We consider any other use of our products than to prevent serious crime and terrorism a misuse, which is contractually prohibited. We take action if we detect any misuse. This technology is rooted in the protection of human rights – including the right to life, security and bodily integrity – and that’s why we have sought alignment with the U.N. Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, to make sure our products are respecting all fundamental human rights.”
