Department of justice Virus message that states your computer has been locked because of alleged law violations is nothing but a hoax created by online hacker to scam unsuspecting users into paying ransom. Though the warnings seem convincing but there is not even an iota of truth in the notification.
It is good to remember that online hackers are misusing the organization to convince you into believing that the message is genuine. Legal people do not take over a computer for violating laws. If any one is found violating laws there are ways to bring that to the notice of the user. This is just a scare tactic employed by hackers.
All police themed ransomwares follow the same mode of operation as threatening victims with law violations. They tend to lock down infected computer and display only one full screen intimidating message. That the user is caught violating laws including visiting child porno and other related activities. Pay fine via MoneyPak and avoid prosecution is the message that the notification states.
Do not be fooled by any of the messages they are just empty warnings. Ignore all the warnings no matter how genuine they seem. But it is suggested to get rid of the virus because the virus is known to make a way for other malwares to infiltrate into the computer. The department of justice virus invades a computer through vulnerable websites, downloading infected attachments and by opening malicious mails.
