Posted: September 26, 2012

FBI Ultimate Game Card Virus Screenshot 1FBI Ultimate Game Card virus is a ransomware Trojan derived from the same family as the Celas Trojan, the Gema 'Access to your computer was denied' Virus, the SIAE Virus, et al. Other than being retooled to target residents of the United States, the FBI Ultimate Game Card virus is the same as the other members of its family and will block your PC with fraudulent legal authority while FBI Ultimate Game Card claims that you've committed online crimes that call for a financial penalty. However, the FBI Ultimate Game Card virus's choice of payment method should be an easy clue to its true nature – whereas other variants of the FBI Ultimate Game Card virus have been known to use Ukash and other generic methods of fund transferals, the FBI Ultimate Game Card virus uses the questionable choice of Ultimate Game Card. SpywareRemove.com malware researchers can't find any reason to do anything other than remove FBI Ultimate Game Card virus with an anti-malware product after you've succeeded in disabling FBI Ultimate Game Card (per the instructions below).

When the Fake FBI Joins Hands with a Trojan to Turn Gaming Pleasure into Fiscal Woe

The FBI Ultimate Game Card virus is easily-identified as a variant of previous ransomware Trojans that have been noted for their nationality-specific attacks throughout Europe and North America. The FBI Ultimate Game Card virus uses the same template for its alert as other members of its family, with the most meaningful alterations being a reference to the FBI – complete with their logo – and a request to use Ultimate Game Card to pay your legal fine (as opposed to a more common method than a gaming card such as Paysafecard or Ukash). Since few victims are likely to believe that the FBI would use an Ultimate Game Card service for legal fee transactions, SpywareRemove.com malware experts note that it's unlikely that the criminals who designed FBI Ultimate Game Card virus are based in the US, as this choice seems to be an example of their floundering attempt to adapt their scam to unfamiliar territory.

The FBI Ultimate Game Card virus is installed in such a way as to launch with Windows and will block you from using any aspect of your OS, including other applications, by displaying a screen-wide pop-up alert. Even though the FBI Ultimate Game Card virus's alert claims that you've committed crimes and must pay the price, SpywareRemove.com malware experts are happy to confirm that the FBI Ultimate Game Card virus is unaffiliated with the FBI and can be ignored until you're ready to delete the FBI Ultimate Game Card virus in an appropriate manner.

Getting Out of PC Con Games and Back to Your Real PC Games

Disabling the FBI Ultimate Game Card virus is, as usual for ransomware, a necessity before you can remove the FBI Ultimate Game Card virus. Safe Mode may allow you to avoid the FBI Ultimate Game Card virus's startup routine and always should be available, since FBI Ultimate Game Card virus and other members of its family haven't shown any compatibility with non-Windows operating systems. However, if Safe Mode fails to disable the FBI Ultimate Game Card virus, SpywareRemove.com malware research team also can encourage you to boot an uninfected OS from a clean source – such as a USB drive. FBI Ultimate Game Card virus should be removed with anti-malware software, since the presence of an FBI Ultimate Game Card virus is likely to include other PC threats on your computer.

However, other PC threats associated with FBI Ultimate Game Card virus may be used to distribute FBI Ultimate Game Card virus, and security for networks and removable storage devices should be considered paramount until you can verify that your PC is clean of FBI Ultimate Game Card virus and all else.
