Pay a $300 fine or else your Android phone will be locked

by: William Neilson JrMay 8, 2014
Using the logo of the FBI and President Barack Obama, Android-Trojan.Koler.A uses a location function to tailor the warnings to whatever country that you reside in.

In some cases, a phone can be restored only when you pay a so-called "fine" of about $300, using payment services such as Paysafecard or uKash that are incredibly difficult to trace. Thankfully, there is no evidence that the malware encrypts any files on a phone's storage.
