An android user has reportedly received a malicious Whatsapp contact file which is capable of changing your Whatsapp groups name and contacts name to Priyanka.

A Blogger Shivam reported in his blog that he received a contact file from his relative.  After he added to his contacts,  the file managed to replace the group names with "Priyanka".

It is not clear what exactly the malware is doing other than changing the name.  No one is going to spread a malware without any profits or the malware authors might be fan of "Priyanka Chopra" :P.

The malware requires user to accept the contact.  So, Users are advised not to add it to your contacts.

Anyone who have the sample of this malicious contact file, please mail us if possible.
