Another Ransomware Variant: Keep A Look Out
Android users: There is another particularly nasty ransomware variant out there. It’s called DoubleLocker.
True to its name, the ransomware tries to do two things to force payment: 1) It changes the device PIN, and 2) It encrypts the Android device.
Not sure how much this is spreading, but there is one thing that everyone can do to help slow down the spread, and hopefully avoid becoming a target: Be careful when viewing Adobe Flash on your device. This seems to be spreading through fake Flash sites.
Essentially, watch what you’re watching, and only go to legitimate sites, and (knock on wood), you should be OK, hopefully.
Stay safe out there.
