Tried to update my WhatsApp today, was last updated 2 days ago - need to read more...

 

Thanks, @Bambino and @Cleoriff for the info.

Yes @Cleoriff I saw that earlier, but your thread has disappeared. What happened to it?
@pgn My last update for WhatsApp was May 10. I think that one was the patch, so you should be okay.

Thanks, @Bambino, I can rest easier now. Must tell family to update theirs too...

 

@Cleoriff asked for her duplicate (albeit a Telegraph rather than Reuters article) post to be removed, hence its disappearance.
