Everyone with WhatsApp on their phone should update to the latest version of the app as soon as possible, the company said on Tuesday.

The WhatsApp vulnerability found is a so-called “zero-click zero-day,” a previously undiscovered vulnerability that can infect a target’s phone with no action from the victim.

The best course of action for users is to make sure auto-update is on for either your iPhone or Android devices.
