Blue Whatsapp Scam - New Version Available Malicious App

Cybercriminals are attempting to trick WhatsApp users into installing a malicious app disguised as Blue WhatsApp. The cybercriminals send a message (see below) to potential victims claiming a new version of WhatsApp is available and ask them to click on the link in the same message. The link goes to a malicious website called "whatsapp .top". The legitimate website is "whatsapp.com".

I just got Blue Whatsapp

Update your version from here hxxps://blue.whatsapp.top

On the malicious website, visitors will be asked to download a malicious app disguised as WhatsApp Blue.

If you were tricked by the "Blue Whatsapp" scam, please remove or uninstall all unknown or suspicious apps from your mobile device. We recommend a factory reset, but this will have to be done by a tech-savvy person.

If you are sent a message asking you to click a link in order to install "Blue Whatsapp," please do not because there is no such app.
