WhatsApp Punk … Hackers attack under the guise of update

WhatsApp Punk … Hackers attack under the guise of update

It should be noted that this update link called “WhatsApp Punk” has been circulating in various social media groups for the last few days.

The explanation given with the update link states that this update will be installed on your mobile and will change the color of WhatsApp to pink, and this is what happens after clicking on it.
But as the color changes, this update can gain access to important information on your mobile phone, such as photos, SMS, videos, usernames and passwords, at the hands of an unknown hacker.

Experts warn that mobile users should not only click on “WhatsApp Punk” but also on any link sent to them by an unknown source.

However, if a user has clicked on “WhatsApp Punk”, he should immediately uninstall the WhatsApp from his mobile and if he has connected WhatsApp to another device (desktop / laptop). If so, disconnect it immediately from this device.

Additionally, go to Mobile “Settings” to clear the browser cache and check the permissions given to other apps. If an app is given irrelevant, unnecessary, or suspicious permissions, block them immediately.
