Warning (and Potential Fix) for a Corona Virus Ransomware App

in #coronavirus2 years ago

Beware of an Android App called "Covid-19 Tracker" as it is an App developed by criminals which will lock your Android Smartphone.

If you install this App and give it the permissions it asks, it will change your Screenlock Password and you won't be able to use the phone at all.

Then, the despicable criminals will ask the user to pay $100 in Bitcoin to unlock his own phone or risk the whole data being deleted in 48h.

(Ain't Android so great? Such a secure OS, isn't it? No wonder it conquered the whole world.) 🤣

Anyway, stay away from this App.

If this warning has reached you too late and you are already a victim of this, please try the following code to unlock it: 4865083501.

This info was not verified by me... but hey, it can't hard to try, if it saves you $100. Right?

Our World has become very small.

Russia seems to be a little better than the rest of the World... is the virus being kept under control?
