National Security Agency virus

Ransomware infections are a type of computer threats that hold your computer hostage in hopes of swindling you out of your money. National Security Agency Virus is one of the most common ransomware infections nowadays, as it comes from the Ukash Virus group, which has been terrorizing computer users worldwide since the beginning of 2012. This infection denies you desktop access and displays a fake notification across your screen, claiming that your computer has been locked due to illegal cyber activities. However, all of the claims are worthless, as the infection only tries to steal your money. Go around its defenses by unlocking your computer and remove National Security Agency Virus immediately.

The notification claims that child pornography material has been detected on your computer and in order to avoid criminal charges you are to pay a few hundred US dollars.

The infection also says that you have only limited time to pay the aforementioned fine. If you fail to pay the fine within the given time, National Security Agency Virus threatens to lock your computer for good and delete all of your data:
