A vulnerability in Facebook's WhatsApp messaging app made it possible for attackers to spread surveillance software to mobile devices through a phone call. The malicious software was developed by controversial security firm NSO Group. According to Business Insider, WhatsApp users can't check whether their device was affected. However, there are certain red flags users can spot that may indicate a mobile device is being manipulated by a third party. Look for changes in your mobile device, such as unusually quick battery usage. If the device is running hot, it may be sending and receiving a lot of data, which is a sign the device is compromised.
