A very, very bad vulnerability was found in Facebook’s WhatsApp messaging app where commercial spyware can be injected to the app by calling you, using buffer overflow.

More updates and developer kits are being offered, but some probably have no use for you (if you are not an app developer).

Apple’s iOS 11 introduces new camera formats (HEIF [High Efficiency Image File Format]/HEVC [High Efficiency Video Coding) option which can save your iPhone’s storage space with quite a significant margin (50%), yet giving you the same – if not better – quality (see an article on JPEG vs HEIF comparison). The problem is that not …
