WhatsApp Alert: All Users need to immediately update their WhatsApp app. The hacker attack I have been warning about on this supposedly secure service has just been confirmed. Because this attack exploits code flaws, the problem has always been there, and we are just now hearing about it being. So there is no telling for how long it may have been collecting your data and info. The spyware exploiting this flaw is capable of trawling through calls, texts and other data, activating the phone’s camera and microphone and performing other malicious activities. Discovered and announced this week by an Israeli company that designs and sells these type of hack tools to nation states for official use. Nothing suspicious about that now is there? Here’s the fix
-If you’re an iPhone user:
Open the App Store on your mobile device
Hit the tab “Updates” along the bottom right
If your WhatsApp has not been updated, a button will appear reading “Update.” Tap and allow your device to install the latest version.
If your app has been updated, there will be no update button, just one that reads “Open.” No further action is required.
If you have difficulty finding WhatsApp, search for it using the search tab on the bottom right
Ensure you are running the latest version: 2.19.51
-If you’re Team Android:
Open the Google Play Store on your mobile device
Tap the menu
Open the “My Apps & Games” tab
Look for the “Updates Pending” section. If your WhatsApp requires an update, it will be listed there. Tap “Update” and allow your device to install the latest version.
If your app has already been updated, there will be no update button, just one that reads “Open.” No further action is required.
If you have difficulty finding WhatsApp, search for it in the Play Store
Ensure you are running the latest version: 2.19.134

International Recommendation: Madras Curry House Torrox Costa (Next to Santandar Round About) serves the best authentic Indian Nepali food in this area. Its a family run business established last year in February and has completed its glorious one year with lots of good recommendations in Trip Advisor( number one in Torrox ) by the visitors. Its revised and updated menu seems very attractive which includes typical Nepali food. If you like curry and courtious staff, its a must visit. Dilliram T., Pokhara, Nepal.

Outside fires: A gentle reminder to those who already know and information for those who don’t yet that, to the best of our knowledge, garden fires are NOT permitted between 01 May and 30 September each year.
We understand that this is primarily to do with the potential for fires getting out of control and causing major wildfires, with a secondary effort to control air pollution.
