Android/Ransom.SLocker is Malwarebytes' detection name for a family of mobile ransomware.
Ransom.SLocker masquerades as various legitimate apps to fool users into accepting escalated rights. Users who accept the escalated rights will have their device forced to reboot. After reboot, users will have their device locked with overlaying screen with instructions to pay.
You can protect yourself by being cautious before giving superuser and/or device administrator rights to any app that asks for it.
