While destructive and inconvenient, it is worth noting that at least the conversations are not leaked and no personal data is exposed. Unfortunately, at this time, the Apple store is not showing the new, fixed version as being available. People should continue to check for an updated version, v2.19.246 or higher, and apply the patch as soon as possible.
