I have a cyber police itunes scam on my tablet. It looks pretty real and says since I went to some adult sites so I could face prison time. I had ever visited some pornhub sites before but never got anything like this. I searched online and found that was a scam. The pop up uses American National Security Agency seals and banner to trick users and it completely blocked my tablet. When I put my pin in, it locks up everything on the tablet so I cannot do anything on it. It says I have about 71 hours left to pay $100 with an iTunes gift card. What should I do? How do I unlock my tablet from this cyber police virus? I am using a Samsung Galaxy 10.1 if that helps.
Cyber.Police American National Security Agency Virus is the newest variant of Cyber Police virus that is distributed through spam email attachments, fake apps on malicious websites, or any legitimate websites that have been compromised. The virus is similar to FBI Moneypak Virus and U.S. Department of Homeland Security Virus mainly used to target users located in USA. It is also categorized as ransomware because the virus can hold its victims’ devices hostage until they pay a ransom. As soon as it is downloaded, it displays a fake message claiming that your device has been blocked by NSA (American National Security Agency) because it is being involved with the distribution of pornographic material, violation of copyright and related law etc. It says you need to pay a release fee of $100 with an itunes gift card within 72 hours to unlock your device and avoid any other “legal consequences”. Since then, you will find that your device has been completely locked up.
