There's hundreds of apps on Android that offer, ahem, 'adult entertainment', which are riddled with all manner of nasty stuff, which could see your phone hamstrung by dodgy lock screen apps, and other grim stuff that's really difficult to remove from your device.

These apps can sometimes be used to steal money from you, as well as your personal data.

Security researcher Alex Dubrovsky of Dell has seen a lock-screen app doing the rounds, thanks to porn apps for Android.

He says: "We have found over a 100 different apps that contain this malware and suspect that the authors behind the apps are gearing up for a much larger more deadly assault."

"This lock screen is spreading mainly via Porn related apps. Based on some of the components it appears that this campaign is still in its early stages and will evolve over time."
