ESET researchers have discovered DoubleLocker, an innovative android malware that mixes a crafty infection mechanism with 2 powerful tools for extorting cash from its victims.

“DoubleLocker misuses android accessibility services, which is a common trick among cybercriminals. Its payload will set the device’s PIN, preventing the victim from accessing their device and encrypts the victim’s device. Such a mix hasn’t been seen yet within the android operating system.”
