Mandiant USA Cyber security virus is another fake notification scam designed by hackers to swindle money from unsuspecting users. It is the latest of the bogus law violation notice scam to hit the web from the ransomware family. Like the infamous department of justice it pretends to lock down PC disguising as a law violation notice from Cyber security and demand $300 fine to restore locked PC.
It is true that the warning page claims that the PC is locked by cyber security, but this just another false claim by hackers to convince users. FBI is not known to lock down a system for breaking laws. More so FBI collecting fine via moneypak is something never heard before.
The virus is propagated through compromised websites and by downloading malicious attachments and by clicking dodgy links. Alternatively the virus is also known to invade a PC through spam emails, software codec and through updates. The hackers employ a Trojan to infect ransomware. Trojan invades a computer without the knowledge or consent of users.
The virus program once gets inside of a PC, performs modifications to the registry settings and downloads vicious destructive programs. The virus then blocks all programs running in the computer and displays only one law violation page and demands fine to restore PC. Do not give in to the warnings they are just empty threats. Do not pay any fine this is just a scam.
