Russian anti-virus company Doctor Web has updated Dr.Web for Android and Dr.Web for Android Light to versions 9.01.5 and 9.00.0, respectively. The update improves the unlock algorithm for devices infected with locker ransomware and resolves known issues.

The unlock algorithm has been changed: the user should start charging the device, and then after five seconds, unplug the power cord and shake the device vigorously.

In addition, known defects have been corrected.

The updated anti-viruses are available on Google Play (Dr.Web for Android. Comprehensive protection, Dr.Web for Android. Life License and Dr.Web Anti-virus Light) as well as from Doctor Web's site.

The update will be downloaded and installed automatically. If automatic updates are disabled on the device, go to Google Play; choose Dr.Web Anti-virus, Dr.Web Anti-Virus Life license or Dr.Web for Android Light on the application list; and click "Update".

To perform an update via Doctor Web's site, download the updated distribution. If the option “New application version” is enabled, a new version notification will be displayed when the virus databases are being updated. You can start the download directly from this dialogue box.
