Submission + - WhatsApp verfication check flaw (tweakers.net)

rvw writes: Using a prepaid phone without credit, you can take over another WhatsApp account. During installation WhatsApp asks you to enter your mobile phone number and sends out an SMS to verify the number. Because the SMS is not sent, but is accessible, you can send the SMS via a mobile service, using another phone number. The account is then linked to your phone, and will be disabled on the other phone.
