For those that do not follow the latest security scams and tricks being used to compromise your smartphone, here is the latest to be aware of:

A new scam using WhatsApp is trying to infect smartphones with a nasty virus.

Users of the mobile app are being warned about the scam which is affecting Android devices. They are being sent 'secret' messages, which offer an exclusive version of the app called WhatsApp Gold, with enhanced features "used by celebrities." But it is just being used as a sneaky way of installing malware onto users' smartphones.

Officials from WhatsApp said it will never send users a message asking them to upgrade or download another app, and this is a scam by criminals trying to steal information.
