Off-late Ransomware like WannaCry and Petya are giving IT administrators sleepless nights. Although they were targeting PCs. However, hackers have now started targeting Android devices. A ransomware named LeakerLocker is getting spread via spurious apps on Google Play. Especially the app, Booster & Cleaner Pro and Wallpapers Blur HD are spreading this.
LeakerLocker collects your personal data like pictures, messages, contacts and more and threatens to share the same to your contacts if you don’t pay them USD 50. As a safety measure, whenever you install an app, please do not blindly grant permissions to the app.
