Your browser has been locked

Should you encounter a webpage that restricts other website access and does not allow you close your browser window, you most probably have opened a page that contains a malicious javascript. You see a notification that says “Your browser has been locked”, and this infection tries to convince you that the only way to leave the page or close your browser is to pay the $300 release fee for copyright infringement. Naturally, you have not committed anything of the sort, and you should not pay no heed to the message on your screen, which reads:

Your browser has been blocked due to at least one of the reasons specified below.
You have been subjected to violation of Copyright and Related Rights Law (Video, Music, Software) and illegally using or distributing copyrighted contents.
You have been viewing or distributing prohibited Pornographic content

YOUR BROWSER HAS BEEN LOCKED.
ALL PC DATA WILL BE DETAINED AND CRIMINAL PROCEDURES WILL BE INITIATED AGAINST YOU IF THE FINE WILL NOT BE PAID.

Needless to say, that these threats are meaningless and Your browser has been locked virus has nothing to do with the FBI and other law enforcement authorities. It is more similar to other ransomware infections, such as FBI MoneyPak Virus or NSA Virus. Take note that this malicious javascript might also go by the name of All activities of this computer have been recorded Virus. Either way, you should never transfer any payment via MoneyPak, as it is hard to track money transfers through alternative payment systems. Once you pay the fine – your money is gone.

How to terminate Internet Explorer process

  1. Right-click the taskbar.
  2. Select Start Task Manager and open Processes tab.
  3. Click Show processes from all users button and highlight iexplore.exe.
  4. Press End Process button.
