Bundesnachrichtendienst Virus

Bundesnachrichtendienst Virus is a malicious computer infection which falls into the ransomware category. Just like all the other infections from the same group, Bundesnachrichtendienst Virus locks you out of your computer without a single warning by displaying a fake notification which was supposedly sent by BundesNachrichtenDienst (Federal Intelligence Service). This makes user think that he or she has done something illegal, but it is only a scam devised to make you spend your money for nothing. Remove BundesNachrichtenDienst from your computer once you restore your desktop access and then make sure that no other dangerous infections are present in your system.

If you are wondering how BundesNachrichtenDienst gets into your computer, there might be more than a few answers. In general, just like with GVU Virus, Europol Virus, Bundespolizei Virus and other Ukash infections intended for the German market, this ransomware program is distributed by Urausy Trojan. The Trojan infection may be hiding in a pornography website behind pop-up advertisements, or in a fake updater file which is forced upon you in order to “update” particular software you have not updated for a while (that is one of the reasons why it is important to keep all of your programs updated).

Either way, once BundesNachrichtenDienst gets in, it successfully locks you out of your PC and then displays a threatening notification which gives you only 48 hours to pay up the “fine”:

WARNUNG! Zugang von Ihrem persönlichen Computer wurde vorläufig aus den unten aufelisteten Gründen gesperrt.
Die Strafe soll von Ihnen innerhalb von 48 Stunden nach der Verletzung bezahlt werden. Sobald die 48 Stunden vergangen sind, weden innerhalb weiteren 48 Stunden alle Informationen über Sie automatisch gesammelt, und Sie werden strafrechtlich verfolgt.
Die Größe der feinen beträgt €100 Euro.
Sie können mit Hilfe PaySafeCard zahlen.

Bundesnachrichtendienst Virus says that you have been involved in viewing and distributing copyrighted material illegally, as well as storing child pornography, bestiality and other illegal material. For that you may face up to 8 years in jail, but you can avoid the criminal sentence if you pay a 100 Euro fine within 48 hours via PaySafeCard alternative payment system.

When users are threatened with criminal charges they are more bound to pay up the fine no matter how ridiculous it would all sound. After all, you could check the credibility of such message very easily just by contacting your local law enforcement authorities office. Then you would be clearly told that Bundesnachrichtendienst Virus is a fake.

However, even though the message displayed by Bundesnachrichtendienst Virus is not real, your computer is still infected with malware. You need to unlock your PC and then get yourself a legitimate antimalware tool that will help you remove Bundesnachrichtendienst Virus automatically along with Trojans and other malicious threats that most likely reside in the depths of the system.
