Glad to hear it only works on WIFI as I don't use WIFI anywhere but at home. But I can't believe they've just been sitting on this for a year. And apparently they have or had other security issues that were handled in questionable ways. Hope all this coverage gains traction and they are forced to address this.

Plain Text?

I've tried it between my two android devices and sniffed the network traffic with Wireshark (sent a text message in WA). Here is a screenshot where you can see that the whole network traffic was in ssl packets (except the ACK's). I haven't tried the WA sniffer yet but my suggest is that it uses man in the middle attack and if the Whatsapp doesn't verify the SSL certificate the sniffer device can scam with it.
