You can also report it to the official whatsapp owners.

There is nothing I, any of the other users of this webboard or avast can do about it.

Then also there is the danger of Google's One Account Everywhere that makes this threat worse.
Malicious Apps get more dangerous because of what Google calls "a feature"
and really is getting more insecurity surface.
