Do not download, install WhatsApp Gold: It's malware, scam


Credulous WhatsApp users are being tricked into downloading 'WhatsApp Gold', an apparently 'exclusive' version of the app which actually infects mobiles with malware.

A number of the app's users have reported receiving messages urging them to sign up for the service via the WhatsApp Gold website, which is linked in the message.

The app's extra features (which the scammers claim have only previously been available to top celebrities) include the ability to send hundreds of pictures at once, new emojis, video calling,enhanced security features and more customisation options.

Naturally, the whole thing is nonsense. Downloading the program from the website will simply infect your phone with malware, possibly allowing cybercriminals to steal your data or track your movements and activity.

There's been a spate of WhatsApp Gold messages recently, but the scam has existed in different forms for a while, sometimes under the name 'WhatsApp Plus'.

WhatsApp will actually ban users if it detects this unauthorised software on their phones, and says in the FAQ section of its website: "WhatsApp Plus is an application that was not developed by WhatsApp, nor is it authorised by WhatsApp."

"The developers of WhatsApp Plus have no relationship to WhatsApp, and we do not support WhatsApp Plus."

The company warns users that the scam software can pass private information "to third parties without your knowledge or authorisation."

It advises users to immediately uninstall the unauthorised app, and forces them to wait 24 hours before they can use the real WhatsApp again.

In some ways, the con is similar to the Apple ID scam which hit iPhone users last month. By preying on technological illiteracy, the scammers use worrying or enticing pitches to get people to download malware, or hand over their personal information.

As usual, the best way to avoid the WhatsApp Gold scam is to ignore and delete any messages which mention it.

The only apps you download should come from the Google Play Store or the App Store, and if you're in doubt about a too-good-to-be-true new app, you shouldn't install it.

Serikali kupitia Wizara ya Afya, Maendeleo ya jamii, Jinsia, Wazee na Watoto , imesitisha tamko la utoaji wa vyakula kwa wagonjwa watakaolazwa katika hospitali ya Taifa ya Muhimbili ili kupisha utafiti wa kina kuhusu huduma hiyo ili kuweza kutoa kilicho bora kwa watanzania.

Akizungumza hayo leo jijini Dar es salaam Waziri wa Afya, Maendeleo ya jamii, Jinsia, Wazee na Watoto Bi. Ummy Mwalimu amesema kwamba wameamua kusitisha mpango mpaka watapotangaza tena ili kufanya utafiti kujua kama kuna faida au hasara kwa wananchi.
“Natoa tamko kwamba huduma hii iliyotarajiwa kuanza hivi karibuni isitishwe mara moja ili kupisha watafiti waweze kufanya uchunguzi kujua inawasaidia kwa kiasi gani wananchi” alisisitiza Bi. Mwalimu.
Aidha Bi. Mwalimu amesema kwamba huduma hiyo itatolewa kwa wagonjwa watakaolazwa hapo kwa kulipia shilingi elfu 50 ikiwemo shilingi elfu kumi ya kumuona daktari , elfu kumi ya kitanda na elfu 30 iliyobaki ni kwa malipo ya chakula kwa wiki.

Sumukuvu yagunduliwa katika utafiti wa awali wa "mlipuko wa ugonjwa Dodoma"

Waziri wa Afya, Maendeleo ya jamii, Jinsia, Wazee na Watoto Bi. Ummy Mwalimu amesema kwamba matokeo ya awali ya jopo la wataalamu watafiti katika wilaya za Chemba na Kondoa Mkoani Dodoma limegundua kuwepo kwa sumukuvu (aflatoxin) iliyosababisha kuripotiwa kwa mlipuko wa ugonjwa ulioathiri watu waliokula vyakula vyenye sumu hiyo.
“Hayo ni matokeo ya awali ya watafiti wa wizara yangu hivyo basi nasubiri matokeo ya vipimo vya damu na haja ndogo vilivyopelekwa kwa uchunguzi zaidi katika Maabara ya CDC, Atlanta iliyopo nchini Marekani na matarajio yetu ni kupata majibu hayo katika kipindi kisichozidi wiki moja” aliongeza Bi Mwalimu.
Aidha Bi. Mwalimu amesema kwamba mpaka kufikia tarehe 24 Juni 2016, idadi ya wagonjwa imefikia 32, na idadi ya vifo imebakia 7. Hii ni baada ya kuongezeka kwa wagonjwa 11 katika kipindi cha wiki moja.
“Hadi jana kulikuwa na jumla ya wagonjwa 9 ambao wamelazwa katika Hospitali ya Mkoa ya Dodoma, na 14 wako katika Hospitali ya Wilaya ya Kondoa. Wagonjwa watatu waliolazwa Hospitali ya Mkoa Dodoma, na wawili waliolazwa Kondoa, bado hali zao ni tete” aliongeza Bi. Mwalimu.
Pamoja na hayo Bi. Mwalimu alisema kwamba Serikali itaendelea kuimarisha mikakati ya kitaifa ya kupunguza uchafuzi wa sumukuvu katika vyakula, ikiwa ni pamoja na kujenga uwezo wa kupima vimelea hivyo katika damu na mkojo miongoni mwa taasisi za ndani ya nchi.
“Tutaendelea kutoa matibabu kwa wananchi walioathirika na Ugonjwa huo, kwenye Hospitali ya Mkoa wa Dodoma na Hospitali ya Wilaya ya Kondoa ili kudhibiti na kurudisha afya za wananchi katika kiwango kinachohitajika,” aliongeza Bi. Mwalimu.
Aidha Bi. Mwalimu ametoa rai kwa wananchi na wakazi wa Dodoma kuchambua nafaka zilizoharibika (zilizooza, kuvunjika, zilizobadilika rangi), kukoboa mahindi kabla ya kuyasaga au kuacha kutumia nafaka zitakazoonekana kuharibika sana ili kuepukana na kiasi kilichozidi sumukuvu kwenye nafaka.
