The ransomware encrypts the Android device’s files and then displays a ransom message imitating the notorious WannaCry malware. Hackers have begun distributing Android ransomware disguised as copies of the popular multiplayer online battle game King of Glory, which has millions of users, security researchers have warned. The malware has prompted “emergency” warnings to be posted on gaming forums and websites in China, security firm Sophos said in an advisory. “This ransomware was spread via internet gaming forums and downloaded and installed by unsuspecting gamers,” Sophos said in the advisory, without estimating the number who might have been affected.
