WhatsApp goes through a crash that causes blocked users to send messages. The bug was reported by users of Android and iPhone on social networks. In response to dnetc, those responsible for the application acknowledged the flaw and said that they are working to resolve the issue.
For now there is no official information on what to do to prevent the problem from happening. The main side effect is getting texts, photos and videos from people blocked in the messenger's contact list again.

The bug was first seen by the profile WABetaInfo, specialized in leaking information about the chat application. The account owner classified the situation as critical. He suggested the procedure of unblocking the contact and, subsequently, blocking the person in question again. It is not known whether step by step effectively corrects the problem.
Still according to the profile, the problem seems to occur in the WhatsApp servers, the data processing center that directs messages between users.
