    Default Caution warning to those who use WhatsApp!

    I received this from a friend in Miami:

    This is from Miami-Dade County Public Schools: our IT*guy: If you know anyone using WhatsApp you might pass on this. An IT colleague has advised that a video comes out tomorrow from WhatsApp called martinelli do not open it , it hacks your phone and nothing will fix it. Spread the word.

    If you receive a message to update the Whatsapp to Whatsapp Gold, do not click !!!!!

    Please inform all contacts from your list not to open a video called the "Dance of the Pope". It is a virus that formats your mobile. Beware it is very dangerous. They announced it today on BBC radio.
