Joint Chiefs of Staff virus

Joint Chiefs of Staff virus is a ransomware threat which like its predecessors seeks to rip you off. A Trojan horse gets to the system while you are browsing suspicious websites or are involved in other insecure Internet activities. As the major goal of Joint Chiefs of Staff virus is to get your money, a misleading full-screen notification asking to pay a fine is displayed. In case your computer is paralyzed by this cunning threat, it is crucial to ignore the content of the warning as it does not present information related to your computer. Moreover, in order to remove the warning containing the credential of Joint Chiefs of Staff, which is a legal institution, you should implement a powerful spyware removal tool.

Not surprisingly, the notification displayed by Joint Chiefs of Staff virus claims that the computer has been  locked because of some violations of the law of the United States of America. To scare the user into believing that he or she has to pay a fine of 400 U.S. dollars, cyber criminals have added three law articles dealing with the use of pornography and copyrighted contents and the breaches of the law of copyright:

Article – 184. Pornography involving children (under 18 years) […]
Article – 171. Copyright […]
Article – 113. The use of unlicensed software

In order to unlock the computer, the fine of $400 is said to be paid via MoneyPak. We encourage you to ignore the notification as it is one of examples of spam. So far, various ransomware infections, including FBI Cybercrime Division and Spamhaus virus have been detected, all of which contain the emblems of some legal enforcement agencies which are presented in order to convince gullible victims that the warning is real.

If your computer has an external or in-built camera and you see yourself on the screen, do not worry as Joint Chiefs of Staff are not monitoring. It’s just a trick to swindle you out of your money. Moreover, the logos at the bottom of the message do not actually mean anything. The companies behind the trademarks such as Sophos, McAfee and Eset are not affiliated with the creators of Joint Chiefs of Staff virus.

In order to delete the virus in question manually, a person has to be highly skilled and experience. Even if he or she knows how to terminate malware, it is highly advisable to use anti-spyware software. By using SpyHunter, you will not need to make manual changes in the Registry, look for the malicious files whose names may be barely recognizable, and so on. Below you will find instructions which will help you install our recommended program with ease.
