Microsoft has warned Android phone users that a dangerous virus for their smartphones, MalLocker.B, is being transmitted through online forums and websites, and that the virus is mostly hidden inside Android apps. Be careful when loading.
What does this virus do?

If this malware gets into a phone, it first prevents the user from accessing the phone’s screen. Unlike other ransomware, “Mall Locker.b” does not encrypt the phone’s language and displays a message that I claim to be from a law enforcement agency and a ransom is demanded for unlocking the screen.

The screen does not work despite every attempt by the user to press the Home or any other button and threatening messages are displayed by “hackers” demanding money in exchange for opening the screen. The code of this malware is very simple and can be easily transferred to more than one phone.
