Porn App Took Secret Photos Of Users

Do people not realize they can get porn without an app? Even worse is that this app can’t even be found in official stores; it has to be manually installed.

Adult Player appeared to offer pornography, but secretly took pictures of users with the phone's front-facing camera. It then locked the user's device and displayed a demand for $500 (آ£330) which was difficult to bypass. One security expert told the BBC that ransomware was a lucrative and growing area of cybercrime.
