Irish data watchdog examining WhatsApp security flaw

Ireland’s data protection watchdog – the Irish Data Protection Commission- said it was “actively engaging” with WhatsApp’s Irish division to determine if EU user data had been impacted.

But because WhatsApp is still investigating whether any EU data was affected as a result of the flaw, the company has not notified the watchdog of the breach under the bloc’s stringent GDPR regulations. The commission therefore has not yet launched a formal investigation into the vulnerability.
