There have been many reports in the news over the last few months describing a “malware” or “ransomware” affecting Mac OS X users that attempts to block their web browser and trick them into paying $500 by posing as an FBI notice. If you happen to see this FBI pop-up on your iPhone or iPad, don’t be scared or pay the fine to unlock your device because this notice is not from any law enforcement agencies as it mentioned like FBI, Australian Federal Police, Metropolitan Police or U.S. Department of Justice. Instead, it is a malware designed by cyber criminals to trick innocent users and steal their money. If your phone is infected with the FBI virus, it will display a fake FBI notice taking over your web browser including Safari, Chrome or Firefox immediately. It pretends to be the FBI and tells the victim the browser has been blocked because they have been viewing or distributing prohibited Pornographic content even though the victims have never done that before. And to get Internet access back and avoid other legal consequences, they are obligated to pay a release fee of $500 through Moneypak which is a prepaid card that can be purchased at a store like Kmart, CVS, Walmart, or Walgreens or Paypal.

“Hi, I have been warned with a $500 fine because of a thing such as pornography and said that it would erase all my apple ID photos and such, is this a real thing or a scam?”
Hi, I have been warned with an FBI notice thing where it says I am a victim of pornography etc? It asked me to pay 500 or else my apple ID, photos, videos etc will be deleted if not paid.

Apple users should do research before paying the huge fine. The FBI malware will only take your money but not resolve anything even if a fine is paid. Be aware that real FBI will never ask you to pay a fine by the means of locking your mobile device. Don’t rush to pay for the fine and think logically, if the FBI were watching your internet activity, would they show you a notice telling you and giving you the opportunity to destroy the evidence? If you were really doing something illegal and the FBI found out, the first thing it will happen is that FBI would come knocking on your door with a search warrant without warning you. Usually this ransomware comes into a system by opening a spam email, clicking malicious pop-up ads or visiting unsafe website. One should know that 500$ penalty doesn’t exist at all and all the bad consequences like deleting your iPhone data, sending info to your contacts or going jail will not happen. To sum up, Once FBI Notice pops up on your browser, you had better get rid of it manually as quickly as possible.
