In response to the study, Facebook, which owns WhatsApp, has said it won't fix the problem, and that group chats "remain protected" by the app's encryption.

Given the alternatives, I think that's a pretty reasonable design decision, and I think this headline pretty substantially mischaracterizes the situation. It is said that this flaw can comprise of the end-to-end encryption of the messaging platform.
