A large number of Android smartphone users may soon find themselves in something of a security cul de sac. Google has confirmed that they will no longer be supplying updates or software patches for so called ‘legacy’ versions of their Android operating system. The announcement comes on the heels of the release of Android KitKat 4.4 and Lollipop 5.0; the most recent iterations of Google’s flagship operating system. Unfortunately, with more than 60% of all Android users still running legacy versions of the software, that decision puts millions of people at a heightened security risk. An exploitable bug in older versions of Android (specifically anything prior to, and including, Jellybean 4.3) has the potential to leave millions of Android users vulnerable to hacking and other cybercrimes.

That WhatsApp for Windows Phone is the least supported version compared to Android and iOS is no secret. However, now WhatsApp was pulled from the Windows Phone Store and cannot be downloaded currently.
The WhatApp Team gave following statement regarding the issue:
Unfortunately due to technical issues, we have chosen to un-publish WhatsApp Messenger on the Windows Phone platform. We are working closely with Microsoft to resolve the issues and hope to return to the store shortly. We apologize to our users for the temporary inconvenience.
Let’s hope that WhatsApp will be very soon available again and moreover receive a proper update.
