BSA Virus

There are many organizations and institutions that make sure copyrighted software is used safely and legally. Business Software Alliance (BSA) is one of such organizations, but it does not have the power to get into your computer or lock it down. Therefore, when you see BSA Virus display a notification that all activity on your computer has been recorded you must not panic, because the message window that does not allow you to access your desktop has nothing in common with the real BSA. BSA Virus is a malicious ransomware infection that enters your system in hopes of ripping easy financial gain.

BSA Virus is a new application from the Ukash Virus family. Its predecessors include such notorious programs as FBI Moneypak, Anonymous Virus, Metropolitan Police Virus and other annoying ransomware applications. Although BSA Virus does not delete your files or slow down your computer, it literally renders your system useless because you simply can no longer access it. There is a big notification window between you and your desktop in case you get infected, and unless you remove BSA Virus there is no way to make the notification disappear.

Previous versions of this ransomware made use of various law enforcement institutions and their symbols to make the users think that they have breached international laws. BSA Virus makes use of a trade group that tries to stop copyright infringement of software, but no matter how powerful the organization is, it still CANNOT trespass your privacy. Therefore, it is obvious that BSA Virus notification should not be taken seriously, no matter how threatening it might look:

Your personal computer has been noticed in viewing, storing and using of forbidden and pirate software, audio and video content.

Now your PC is locked by Business Software Alliance trade group and Information Resources Management Association.

You have to use licensed only software, store only licensed and legal files and programs on your computer. You shouldn't use any software for downloading audio, video and other types of pirate and forbidden content on your computer.

How to unlock your computer?
You should buy MoneyPack code denominated of 250 dollars.
