NEW YORK -- (KDVR) -- There’s a porn-watching app that secretly takes control of your phone, snaps your picture, locks you out of the device, then demands a $500 extortion payment.

The cybersecurity firm Zscaler just discovered that this Android app, called “Adult Player,” is actually just malware in disguise.

It’s easy to avoid, though. Adult Player can only be downloaded from illegitimate websites. If you follow a basic safety rule you’re safe: Only download apps from the official Google Play store.
