What’s APP Voice Message Virus/Malware

Posted on October 10th, 2013

Early this week we had a laptop dropped off which had being infected by a virus/malware infection.

The infection was caught via an E-Mail allegedly sent from what’s App informing you that there is a voicemail waiting for you. It asks you to download a file to play the ‘message’ in-fact it is downloading the virus.

Which will then install a range of software, which will try and get you to purchase their software to clean up your computer, the software will typically tell you that:

  • Your computer has X amount of problems
  • Number of virus infections
  • Corrupt files.
  • To name just a few examples

Below is an example of the email which will try and infect your computer.

If you receive any emails like this. Don’t download the voicemail and simple delete the email.
