Does your phone have FMWhatsApp version? Otherwise the phone will be controlled and the bank account will be wiped clean


In a flurry of more features, users often download a modified version of the Trojan WhatsApp.

 This version is downloaded from a source other than the Play Store or App Store

Hotspot can be downloaded from Google Play Store, Apple Store and the company's official website. However, there are many sources to download it. The user often downloads the wrong WhatsApp from this source. Then he has to face the problem. One of the modified Android versions of WhatsApp has been found, which can fully control the user's smartphone.


According to the latest report from cybersecurity firm Kaspersky, a modified version of WhatsApp, FMWhatsApp 16.80.0, is back on the web. This app gives users an additional feature, which is not present in the original app. Because of this, users can download it. The latter can be controlled from the app with all the details accessed from their smartphones.


The new version of FMWhastApp has a Trojan Triada, Kaspersky said. It also comes with an Advertising Software Development Kit (SDK). Here's how it works ...


Affected by Trojan, this app acquires unique device identifiers such as device ID, subscriber ID, MAC address.

It then sends it to a remote server. After the information reaches the server, the server registers the new device.

The Trojan in the app then downloads the payload to the infected device. It then decrypts the content and launches it into operation.


Downloads payload to phone

Researchers have reported many malwares carrying out this type of activity through FMWhatsAp. This malware downloads payloads once downloaded to the device and allows hackers to perform multiple functions on the device. These include displaying a full screen ad, running invisible ads in the background, and activating a paid subscription to the owner's information without a device.

Risk of bank account depletion

According to the report, FMWhatsApp takes permission to read the SMS of the device. Because of that he easily starts emptying the bank account by subscribing to the paid subscription.
