In the wake of a massive ransomware attack, the Federal Trade Commission is warning consumers to be wary of hiring an application from an application developer called Whataburger.
That developer is a well-known startup with a reputation for offering free-to-use applications that allow people to trade and sell goods without the need for an account.
The FTC said in a blog post Thursday that the app is used by companies like Ford, Verizon, and McDonald’s, and the FTC claims that the apps are used by the same people who wrote the ransomware.
The company is asking consumers to stop using the app until it removes the app from the app store.
In a statement, Whataburgers CEO Paul Schuster said the app’s developer, Whatalicious, is an anti-privacy software vendor that uses stolen credit card numbers to access a variety of sensitive data including financial records and personal information.
He added that his company is working with the FTC to get the app removed from the App Store.
“Whataburger is a service we are working with to remove the app as soon as possible,” Schuster wrote.
“We have also begun reviewing the code, and we will be doing the same with any future code that may be downloaded from the developer’s servers.
We have taken steps to protect against this activity and we take seriously the concerns of the FTC, who have taken us to task for these alleged activities.”
Whataburbers app is available on the App store for $1.99.
But while the app may not have the most sophisticated features, it does have some important features that might help prevent the ransomware from taking over your account: The app has a feature that allows users to track the credit card transactions of other users on a company’s network.
The app’s developers claim that the feature can help prevent fraud by users who know the other person’s personal information and credit card details.
But in the past, some of the apps developers have been caught using this feature to track users for malicious purposes.
According to the FTC blog post, WhatAuberger used the feature to help its developer track payments from users on Uber’s network, and it appears that the FTC believes that the company has used the same feature to send fraudulent transactions to Uber users.
The fact that the application is available for free on the appstore makes it a legitimate source of employment for many Americans, Schuster added.
“With so many applications available to consumers, WhatABurger has the potential to be a source of job creation,” Schuster wrote.
