In this world filled with new and different and innovative types of ransomware. Now there is a newcomer called as "LEAKER LOCKER" let's see how does this work.
Basically, ransomware is a kind of virus which affects your computer and locks all your data and make it unusable. And it demands you some amount of ransom. So when you pay it the data gets unlocked and you can use it again.
Well, this type of virus became famous 2 months ago with a ransomware called "WANNA CRY" ransomware it basically encrypts your data and when you pay the ransom it decrypts it.
So this time Leaker Locker is a special type of virus that is targeted for smartphones.
What it does is, it creates a backup of all your data in your smartphone and asks you to pay a ransom.
So if you don't pay that specific amount what it does is. It leaks all your data to the public, including contacts, pictures and all other data.
These types of virus attacks your phone through some third party apps that you side loaded for doing some basic activities.
So the only way to stay away from this virus is only to use authorized apps from Google Play Store and be safe.
