While the world is busy searching for a solution to the current Covid-19 virus epidemic, some criminals disguised as h@ckers use it to exploit inattentive Android users by developing a malicious app.
Beware of This Covid-19 Malicious App, It will Hij@ck Your Smartphone

A malicious Android application has been developed that promises to help you find coronavirus cases near you and around the world, but this is just a plan to get ransomware on your phone.

The app promises to provide you with a solution that scans and monitors your surroundings for COVID-19 cases. To fully activate it, the app asks you for some highly unusual permission. It wants to “Activate lock screen to get an instant alert when a coronavirus patient is near you” and “enable the app in Accessibility for active stats monitoring”

Once you grant it those permissions, it will alter your smartphone lock screen password and then, it asks you for a $100 bitcoin ransom to get access to your phone again.

But if your smartphone is running the latest update from Android 7 nougat and above, you may likely not be affected by this malware has google added some security measures to control such attacks. If you also don’t use a screen lock either passcode or pattern, the malware may still attack you.

To be protected from malware attacks, be mindful of the third party sources you download your applications from and always make sure you update your device.

Just like we earlier stated in an article that if your smartphone doesn’t receive an update at all, then you are at risk of malware.

You can read more about the malicious site distributing the app from the source link below
