Thread On WhatsApp (Be Careful / Do’s & Don’ts / Updates / News / Awareness)

How do we know if we become default admin of any whatsapp group?

If admin leaves a group, someone randomly becomes admin of that group

Now, thats risky considering current government laws.

Now a days too many whatsapp groups and cannot delete also, as major groups are related to business.

I think, whatsapp must take this on a serious note and start alert message, as soon as any other member becomes default admin.


If dimers agrees that whatsapp should take this on a serious note, then please vote and create awareness. Also update solutions for such concern……
***************************************************************************

Just sharing below case for reference:
https://thelogicalindian.com/news/whatsapp-grou...

21-year-old Junaid Khan has been behind bars for the last five months over an alleged objectionable message forwarded by somebody else on the instant messaging service.

In February, Junaid, a second-year BSc student and a resident of Talen town in Rajgarh district of Madhya Pradesh, was taken into custody by local police after an alleged anti-national message was posted on a WhatsApp group, where he was the default admin. On 14 February, he was booked under IT Act and Section 124 A (sedition) of the Indian Penal Code, as reported by NDTV.

Became admin by default
It all began when the original administrator of the WhatsApp group, identified as ‘Irfan’ had posted a message. Some locals took objection to it and filed a complaint at the Talen Police station. Subsequently, a case was filed against Irfan and the ‘admin’.

According to Junaid’s family, the original administrator left the WhatsApp group after the objectionable forward, and Junaid ended up as the default admin. “Junaid was a member of the group, but not the admin. When the matter came to light, he was in Ratlam on family work. It was then that the admin left the group and another member became an admin by default. However, he too quit. Junaid became group admin by default. However, he was not the admin when the post was originally shared,” Farukh Khan, Junaid’s cousin told The Times of India.

Farukh also added that his cousin could not sit for his examinations as the court did not grant him bail because he had been booked under sedition.

Meanwhile, the police have been justifying their action based on the evidence they had at that time. “Junaid’s family members did not say this when he was arrested. Now, after the challan has been put up in court, they say he was the ‘default admin’. If they have any evidence, they should produce it in court. Irfan, too, was arrested and when the matter came to our cognisance, Junaid was the admin of the group. There was no evidence or any other way to ascertain at that time who was the admin of the group when Irfan shared the post. We filed the challan by the evidence available with us,” Pachore Police Station-in-charge, Yuvaraj Singh Chouhan told The Times of India.

WhatsApp Has Already Has That Feature To Track Down The Original Group Owner.
Open Any Group. Goto Group Description. You Will See Created By – xxxxxx (Mobile Number) On So And So Date.
Why Cant Police Catch The Original Group Created And Question Him.

Valid.

But, still alternate problem still there.
At once, default admin have to suffer.

So, if whatsapp can have a feature, which gives an alert message to default admin, then atleast that can be a permission based admin.
As of now, default admin (new) do not know when he becomes admin.

WhatsApp Has Another Security Loophole; Here’s How to Keep Yourself Safe

The Indian Computer Emergency Response Team recommends that all WhatsApp users upgrade to the app’s latest version to avoid any security threats.

Facebook had recently issued a warning for its popular instant messaging app Whatsapp, when it discovered a new security threat that allowed hackers to access someone’s data simply by sending them a malicious video file as a message. In fact, even the recent Pegasus scandal that affected journalists, politicians, and human rights activists in India, all it took was missed WhatsApp call to let the spyware snoop on victims. Now, with this new security loophole, victims will receive a malware-laden video file from an unknown number which will play like any other normal MP4 media file, but give the hacker access to the victim’s phone in the background. The Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In) is advising citizens to update to the latest WhatsApp version immediately. “Successful exploitation of this vulnerability could allow a remote attacker to cause Remote Code Execution (RCE) or Denial of Service (DoS) condition, which could lead to further compromise of the system,” CERT-In said.

Which accounts are considered abusive?
An account that registered five minutes before attempting to send 100 messages in 15 seconds is almost certain to be engaged in abuse, as is an account that attempts to quickly create dozens of groups or add thousands of users to a series of existing groups.

By Using the on-platform information available within WhatsApp, the company has found and stopped millions of abusive accounts from operating on service.

What action will be taken?

WhatsApp will take legal action against companies for which we only have off-platform evidence of abuse if that abuse continues beyond December 7, 2019, or if those companies are linked to on-platform evidence of abuse before that date.

The platform, on an average, bans over two million accounts per month for bulk or automated behaviour and over 75% of those accounts did not have any recent user reports.
