NSA Virus police notice on your screen is a bogus scam designed by hackers to extort money novice PC users. It is one of the many existing lockup notice scam in the infamous ransomware family. Like any police themed lockup virus, it exploits the name of legal enforcement institutions to convince users that the message is genuine.
Once the NSA virus gets inside of a computer, it displays a message purportedly from NSA that the user is caught breaching the laws. It claims that the computer has been locked because of alleged law violations. To convince user it displays all law violations and illegal activities carried out by the user. Law violations include visiting child porno sites and downloading audio, video, software fraudulently.
It locks the infected computer completely so that the only thing the user can do is to see the intimidating message. Though none of the claims hold any truth but novice PC users get tricked into believing that it is genuine. All this is an attempt to extort money from users.
The so called fine via moneypak and the law violations displayed are just designed by hackers to convince users. Even the so called prosecution threat is nothing but an empty talk. NSA virus is dangerously cunning because once it gets inside it disables all programs running in the computer including antivirus to prevent user from deleting the lockupware.
