Abstract

On July 16th Lookout wrote about a new "police ransomware" on Android. They named it ScarePakage. (aliases : Eset:Android/Locker.B , Kaspersky:Trojan-Ransom.AndroidOS.Aples.a)

It (or a variant ? seems Norton focused here) is advertised on underground since beginning of July as "Android Locker" by the seller of a fork of Titan Browlock System.
