One of the latest (and scariest) forms of malware that has been spreading rapidly is referred to as FBI Ransomware or FBI Moneypak Virus. The "FBI Ransomware / Moneypak Virus" malware can secretly and maliciously get installed in the background of your operating system without your permission. Once it has been installed, the next time you boot up your computer, you will be completely blocked from accessing your operating system and any of your files. Instead of normally booting up, a window similar or identical to the window shown in the image to the right of this page will pop up. You will not be able to close out of the window, and it will have a fake warning saying that you have violated one or more laws, (of course this is probably not true) and will "require" you have to pay a fine in order to unlock and be able to use your computer again.
The directions will tell you to purchase a Moneypak card and use the code to send them the money they are asking for.
An Important Note About The FBI Moneypak Virus
The FBI Moneypak Virus is a scam to get you to have to pay money in order to regain access to your PC. It is not made by the actual FBI and instead is made by malicious hackers in an attempt to scare you into sending them money before you get into trouble. Please note that you should never follow the instructions, pay any "fines or fees," or provide them with any payment or financial information!
