Urausy FBI Moneypak Virus

Screenlocker infections are not about to disappear anywhere. Urausy FBI Moneypak Virus is a new infection that blocks users from accessing their desktops. The changes performed by the ransomware application are obviously unauthorized, although the infections tries to make it seem as though your computer is locked due to illegal online activities. Urausy FBI Moneypak Virus expects you to pay a 200 USD fine copyright infringement, promising you to drop charges and unlock your computer.
