The following article is a update on Ransomware
(New Android ransomware pretends to be FBI porn warning)
By/ Ian Barker/ Posted on July 17 2014
The large number of devices out there means that Android is becoming an increasingly popular target for malware writers. Ransomware which has previously been a mainly Windows problem is becoming an issue too.
The latest piece of malware discovered by mobile security specialist Lookout attempts to extort money with a scary message claiming to be from the FBI. It claims the user has broken the law by visiting pornography and child abuse websites.
Called ScarePakage, the malware masquerades as well-known apps, like Adobe Flash and a number of anti-virus applications, and pretends to scan your phone when launched. After completing the fake scan it locks your device. You can't navigate away and if you try to reboot, the FBI message will be the first thing you see when you turn back on.
