It's 2019 and a WhatsApp call can hack a phone: Zero-day exploit infects mobes with spyware

And the infected ones are...

So, we have some significant question here.

How do one know if has been a victim of the vulnerability? How do one know if his phone is spied on? Can a regular antivirus on phone detect the NSO spyware (I think not)? Can the user still trust the privacy of your phone?

Because no one knows for how much time this vulnerability is being exploited, nor the number of phones affected. Could be a mass infection, some governments would love that.

For me, in a perfect world, WhatsApp taking responsibility on this flaw would mean giving its users the tools to tell if they're infected or not.
