There's No Security Backdoor in WhatsApp, Despite Reports

This morning, the Guardian published a story with an alarming headline: 
“WhatsApp backdoor allows snooping on encrypted messages.” If true, this would 
have massive implications for the security and privacy of WhatsApp’s 
one-billion-plus users. Fortunately, there’s no backdoor in WhatsApp, and 
according to Alec Muffett, an experienced security researcher who spoke to 
Gizmodo, the Guardian’s story is “major league fuckwittage.”
