ZDNet has published an article about this too:

This new Android malware delivers banking trojan, keylogger and ransomware | ZDNet
Quote:
An experimental form of Android malware delivers a banking trojan, a keylogger and ransomware to those unfortunate to fall victim to it.

Uncovered by security researchers at security company ThreatFabric, the malware was first thought to be an updated version of Lokibot - but as it contain various new features researchers are labelling it as a new form of malware - MysteryBot.

However, MysteryBot and LokiBot share the same command and control server, indicating a strong link between the two forms malware, with the potential that they've been developed by the same attacker.
