A new report suggests that WhatsApp groups that use links to allow users to enter, may once again be vulnerable to being found online. This would theoretically allow anyone to join the group. Indian Express verified the vulnerability and can confirm that some WhatsApp groups may be joinable from the web.
The issue is not just with group invite links but also with individual user account profiles. URLs of people’s profiles can now be searched on Google.
