‘FBI Your PC is Blocked’ Ransomware

‘FBI Your PC is Blocked’ Ransomware Description

FBI Your PC is Blocked Ransomware Screenshot 1'FBI Your PC is blocked' ransomware is a ransomware Trojan that blocks any attempts to use other applications until a high fine is paid. Although 'FBI Your PC is blocked' ransomware displays a fake crime notification that informs you that this is a legal action, 'FBI Your PC is blocked' ransomware's attacks actually are at least as illegal as the crimes that 'FBI Your PC is blocked' ransomware claims you've been caught committing, and SpywareRemove.com malware experts haven't seen any signs that 'FBI Your PC is blocked' ransomware is affiliated with the FBI. As is typically the case with ransomware Trojans, the ideal means of responding to a 'FBI Your PC is blocked' ransomware infection is to disable 'FBI Your PC is blocked' ransomware and then delete 'FBI Your PC is blocked' ransomware in an anti-malware scan, as opposed to giving in to its attempt at online extortion.

Don't Believe It When This FBI Knocks on Your Virtual Door

'FBI Your PC is blocked' ransomware's main symptom is the display of a pop-up that appears to be targeted at United States residents by invoking the authority of the FBI, although residents of other countries may also be in danger from attacks by 'FBI Your PC is blocked' ransomware. Like similar ransomware Trojans such as GVU Gesellschaft zur Verfolgung Ransomware, the Gema 'Access to your computer was denied' Virus or the Buma Stemra Virus, 'FBI Your PC is blocked' ransomware's pop-up warns that you've been caught red-handed engaging in some form of copyright violation, such as trafficking in illegal music files. Supposedly due to this common crime, your PC has been locked until you pay a fine, which in 'FBI Your PC is blocked' ransomware's case is a hefty $100 USD.

Even though 'FBI Your PC is blocked' ransomware adds urgency to its warning by threatening you with litigation after a period of three days, 'FBI Your PC is blocked' ransomware's threats are as hollow as its legal standing.

Kicking This Fake FBI Agent Out of Your Hard Drive

'FBI Your PC is blocked' ransomware, like any good ransomware Trojan, will try to prevent you from using other programs, including security products that could delete 'FBI Your PC is blocked' ransomware and related PC threats.
