This is basically the American version of the infamous wave of ransomware Trojan attacks targeting European computers commonly referred to as the ‘Ukash Virus‘. Once in, FBI Moneypak will lock the system and to unlock the system FBI Moneypak demands you $100. Paying the fine will not remove the malware from the computer, which means the PC will still be exposed to security threats and further infections.
