Mobile malware factories: Android apps for creating ransomware [source: symantec]

Having little to no coding experience is no longer a problem for wannabe mobile malware authors, thanks to Trojan Development Kits (TDKs). Criminals can now install an app that will allow them to quickly and easily create Android ransomware with their own devices. It should be noted that the use of TDKs is different from malware being created using the Android integrated development environment (AIDE).

The whole process of creating new variants has been automated by adopting a CASE (Computer-Aided Software Engineering) tool model or, to be more precise, a DAME (Device-Aided Malware Engineering) tool model.
