Spamhaus Virus

Spamhaus Virus is a ransomware infection which is about to corrupt as many computers as possible. The threat locks down the computer so that you cannot use the machine as usual. Instead of the desktop, you will find a bogus warning claiming that you have no access to the PC because it has been detected that you have been spreading malware. Later on, in the middle of the fake alert, the more concrete information on the reasons why the computer is not longer operable is presented.

Here is how Spamhaus Virus puts it:

Our spamhause agent has conducted a full check of your system and found following violations:

  • You are distributor of pornography and porno materials, regularly watch porno sites with child pornography and zoophilia.
  • You possess unlicensed software and pirate audio and video records.

Such  false accusations are not surprising as the vast majority of the ransomware scams having been detected recently claim that the user of the computer is involved in the activities related to pornography and the use of copyrighted or pirated material. The same scare tactics are employed by such threats as FBI Virus, EC3 Virus and many others. In order to convince the user that he or she must pay the money, cyber criminals presents the warning as if it originated from some legal enforcement agency.

As a result, you should pay no attention to the credentials of Spamhaus. The criminals have appropriated the design of to make you think that the organization accuses you of using prohibited material. Spamhaus has various databases, one of which is XBL Advisory which is also presented in the warning. We recommend you ignore the entities presented as Spamhaus is not related to the threat you have on the PC.

Spamhaus Virus is a scam which is supposed to force you to pay 300 U.S. dollars via MoneyPak which you should not do. If you were to look at other ransomware warning, you would see that MoneyPak is one the services used in the messages for money transactions.
