The LeakerLocker malware requests for $50 only
LeakerLocker was discovered in two apps in the Google Play Store. These are Wallpaper Blur HD, which has been downloaded up to 10,000 times so far, and Booster & Cleaner Pro, which has been downloaded up to 5,000 times. This means that right now about 15,000 people have already fallen victim to this malware, which has been in the Google Play Store since April. Funnily enough, both apps have good reviews on the Store, which means that the perpetrators have been giving fake reviews of the apps.
Once you download any of these apps, LeakerLocker asks for a large number of permissions, including the ability to manage calls, read and send text messages, and access contacts.
