. But do you really think it is so? The thorough analysis of this scary alert on our test machines gave us all the necessary grounds to come to the right conclusion that this is a fake warning that isn't associated with FBI. Instead, this is the product that has been recently developed and launched into the world wide web by the team of cyber hackers and online fraudsters.

Once your system is infected with FBI virus warning the entire desktop (screen) of your machine turns out to be totally inoperable.

". By the way, what is the reason for this locked status according to the very warning supposedly coming from FBI? The locker says that users was found to perform a lot of illegal activities through the targeted machine.

. Sometimes users are accused of sending and spreading unsolicited spam, visiting the sites of terrorist organizations for the purposes of supporting them. In other cases the warning might say that you were noticed to watch a lot of sinful stuff and also distributing it to other addressees. Hence, as you see, the accusation is quite severe, but you have never ever committed anything like that, have you? Whether you have done anything like that or not - hackers are not in the position to condemn uses for doing such things. This ransomware locker isn't associated with the governmental bodies, such as police or other law enforcement agencies.

In the majority of the cases the ransomware locker tells that users should pay the fee (fine or forfeit) in favor of the state by means of Ukash, Paysafecard or GreenDot MoneyPak payment system through indication of a special voucher (PIN) code in the respective field of the ransomware's text. In rare cases they even instruct users to send such information onto the email address they've invented - firstname.lastname@example.org, but this is a real and fraudulent email that collects such financially beneficial information specifically for the benefit of hackers.
