@sebiimaks

It's not a virus. That just means those files are vulnerable to a specific exploit. If we check the details for this exploit (https://www.cvedetails.com/cve/CVE-2017-8738/) we see that it only impacts Microsoft Edge running on Windows 10 because of a faulty way Microsoft Edge handles memory. It has nothing to do with Arch Linux. If you're going to post comments about anti-virus detection, you should point out that it doesn't affect us in anyway.

Thank you @tasnad, added. Yes it's still working perfectly fine. I use it everyday :)

Hi,
I see this is abandoned. However, I just realized libxss is missing from the dependencies.
As whatsie still perfectly works, you could still add it to the dependencies :)

Cheers,
Tasnad

You know that whatsie is just a single purpose browser around the web app with notifications and a few other nifty features, right?

The webversion is a very good replacement for the app:
https://web.whatsapp.com/

It seems that whatsie has been abandoned (https://github.com/Aluxian/Whatsie/issues/494).

I hope you will be able to keep this version working as long as possible though, because Whatsapp does not give any alternative on Linux.
