WARNING!!!!

Watch out for this one! I was just surfing around - NOWHERE NASTY - and my screen turns to this real official looking FBI SYSTEM BLOCKED!! notification.

It told me I was doing Kiddy Porn, being a terrorist, and downloading copyrighted material! All at once!!!!

It wanted $300.00 to buy a code number to unblock my machine. If I didn't want to pay the fine online, I could get a gift card at Walmart, Rite Aid, Walgreens, and a few other stores and submit the code on the card as payment.

Smell like a rat?

Obviously, it's a scam, but it had good hold of my machine - booted right into the notice, and there was a disgusting picture of a young girl being assulted on the page.

It was easy to get out with Malwarebytes, but there is a entry in the startup folder that starts it running on bootup. You NEED to look this fricken thing up and write down instructions how to get it out, unless you have another computer available to look it up. Good thing I have a tablet and got the info

Google Moneypak or Moneypak virus or Moneypak Ransomware.

You need to look this one up. I don't figure anyone's gonna be dumb enough to pay the "fine", but without another machine as backup to find out what to do - yer screwed!

If you haven't done it yet - get Malwarebytes! Free, effective and FREE!

Been using Malwarebytes for years along with Microsoft Essentials. No problems ever.
