WhatsApp “Calling Feature” fake invitation spreading Malware
Cyber Criminals are now taking the advantage of users’ desperation of getting WhatsApp Calling feature. They are circulating fake Whatsapp calling feature invitation which serves dangerous malware.
This fake invitation contains a link which takes users to a website. This website asks users to fill the survey on behalf of WhatsApp. Then this survey asks users to download a software which infects the smartphone. Cyber criminals also ask users to invite 10 people by forwarding this message. So, you must stay away if you receive this message from the person you know.

Later, WhatsApp blocked the roll out of the feature. But users still want to get this feature. Cyber criminals are now trying to trick users to download the malware in their smartphone.
