FBI Cyber department virus is a new variant of ransomware which functions by locking infected computer with a Winlock Trojan similar to Department of justice virus, ICE cyber crime center virus. The lock screen claims that the computer has been locked due to illegal activities but that’s not actually the case. The ransomware is a dangerous program on a computer because it restricts access to desktop and demands payment before removing the lock and providing access.
Hackers generally use computer locking malware which is termed as ransomware and as the name indicates it uses a variety of extorting tricks to get money from victims. The warning page displayed on the lock screen is a bogus one and it has nothing do with legal institutions. It has been noticed that many novice PC users who fall victim to the scam agree to pay ransom to regain access to computer. The ransomware compromises computer security and installs a lock before displaying the bogus screen.
