Cybercriminals try out different methods in order to steal your money. virus is one of these fake alerts that intend to convince you have breached several national laws. This fake alert does not affect your computer, but it can still scare unsuspecting users by blocking their web browsers. Since this annoying nuisance does not harm your PC, it is easy to get rid of virus for good. You simply need to close the web page you are currently on, and avoid visiting suspicious websites in the future. A full system scan would also be a good idea.

You are seeing the virus message, because the website you have opened previously employs a malicious script, and it redirects you to a fake page. According to your security researchers, the main server for virus is no longer working, but it does not mean that you cannot encounter this message on the vast spaces of the Internet. This script affects all main browsers including Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer. It might be hard to close Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer when you open the fake page, but do not worry – everything is possible.

It is not the first time we are seeing something like virus. In fact, this fake alert is very similar to and fake alerts. They copy false messages from ransomware programs and display them on fake websites. However, contrary to ransomware programs, this fake alert does not infect your PC directly. As it has been mentioned before, virus notification is displayed from server’s side, and the only reason you are seeing is because you have access a corrupted website that is involved in online scams. virus claims that you have downloaded multiple files illegally, and therefore it had to block your browser. The fake alert expects you to believe that “National Security Agency and Central Security Service” blocked your browser. Also, virus says that you have to pay $300 via MoneyPak vouchers within 24 hours. If you pay the “fine” on time, “in 7 day term you should remedy the breaches associated with your computer. Otherwise, your computer will be blocked up, and criminal case will be opened against yourself (with no option to pay fine).”

Paying the fine would not solve anything, and you would only lose your money. You simply have to close your browser in order to terminate virus.
