FBI Anti-piracy Warning Screen Locker
FBI Anti-piracy Warning Screen Locker is a malicious infection that is classified as ransomware. Though it is not capable of encrypting files and demanding money in return of a decryptor – which is how most ransomware threats operate – it can simulate a lock-down of your operating system to trick you into paying a ransom. The worst part is that this infection hides behind the credentials of FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigations), which helps conceal the scam. In that regard, this infection is more similar to FBI Virus, MoneyPak Virus, and all other infections alike than such recently discovered screen-lockers as Elmers Glue Locker Ransomware or Mancros Ransomware. The bad news is that if this infection has slithered in, your operating system is vulnerable, and much more serious threat could have invaded it already. The good news is that you can unlock your screen and remove FBI Anti-piracy Warning Screen Locker without spending a dime. If you are interested in this, please keep reading.
Also known as FBI Anti-Piracy Ransomware, the malicious screen-locker can slither into your operating system without any warning. It is unknown how this infection spreads, but it is most likely that it can exploit spam emails or bundled downloaders. Immediately after execution, this infection locks your screen using a screen-size notification that, allegedly, is issued by the FBI. According to this message, your PC was blocked after the US government found you “Watching Porn, Watching Zoophila, Downloading Pirated Apps or Downloading Copyrighted files.” If you have not participated in any of these activities, it should be obvious to you that you are being scammed, and that an infection must be removed. However, if you are guilty, you might be intimidated by the prospect of receiving a “15 year sentence in your local county jail.” If you are tricked into thinking that the message is real, you are likely to pay the $200 “fine” that is represented via the fake screen-locking notification. Unfortunately, at the bottom of the message, you get a misleading statement suggesting that the whole thing is not a scam.
If you live in the United Stated, making Green Dot MoneyPak payments is very easy. All you have to do is purchase a card at your local CVS, Walmart, Rite Aid, Dollar Tree, and many other stores. Once you pay $200 for the card, you are provided with a code, and cyber criminals behind the malicious FBI Anti-piracy Warning Screen Locker push you into entering into the provided “Code” box. If you enter this code, cyber criminals will get your money instantly, and you will not be able to get it back. Will your PC be unblocked in return? There are no guarantees when it comes to that. All in all, you do not need to fulfill the demands of cyber crooks because the FBI has not caught you doing illegal things – if they did, you would not get away with a $200 fine paid via MoneyPak – and you can unlock the screen by killing the process that is responsible for the lock-down. Hopefully, you have not been tricked by mischievous cyber criminals, and you can still delete FBI Anti-piracy Warning Screen Locker without losing any money.
When you are terminating the malicious process that enables FBI Anti-piracy Warning Screen Locker, you need to check the location of the launcher that is responsible for the attack. Once you know the location of this file, you can go ahead and remove it manually. That being said, you should also consider employing anti-malware software because if other infections are active, they will be eliminated as well. Also, anti-malware software can keep your operating system protected in the future, which, we are sure, is something you are interested in.
