HOW IT WORKS
The developers of the malware disguised it as a version of Adobe Flash Player, which is popularly known as a tool that runs video and animations on Internet browsers.
Just like every other deadly virus that affects Android devices, Spy.Agent.SI mostly affect users that download applications and software from unsecured, unknown and unofficial third party websites or mobile app markets other than Google Playstore.

Once it infects your device, it continue to spread in all over the memory space on your phone and multiplies itself. Whenever you are doing something on your phone like bank transactions or any other sensitive activities, it will decide to lock your phone screen and only reopens it after you have provided your private details.
