WhatsApp users warned against new scam

VAAL TRIANGLE - Cybersecurity researchers are warning WhatsApp users about a new scam that's stealing user data called the 'WhatsApp Pink Scam'. The WhatsApp Pink Scam is a malicious app that has a similar interface as WhatsApp but it's pink. To promote app downloads of the fake 'WhatsApp' app, users are receiving several messages encouraging them to install the app using a link. The message urges users to download the pink version and pulls them by claiming that the pink version of the app comes with new features for the users. While the 'WhatsApp Pink' app changes the colour of the app to pink, it actually contains malicious malware that steals sensitive personal data which scammers can use to hack your other accounts.
