I was on kissanime.ru then a pop-up appeared and claimed that I was on an ILLEGAL site and claimed that I NEED to pay $500 dollars in 48 hours, or the POLICE will appear at my home and take me to court, is it real? Cause right now I’m scared of the POLICE appearing here. PLEASE ANSWER!
My Kyocera android phone has popped up with this virus, the vanilla prepaid fbi blocker. When i shut the phone down to restart in safe mode, it automatically turns itself back to the virus screen and doesn’t recognize that I’m trying to restart in safe mode when i try to accomplish it at the vendor screen. Are there any other possible things i can try to remove it??
I was on a porn site when a file started downloading, I wanted to see what the file was so I clicked on it and it pulled up a porn page which then pulled up a FBI page that i can’t get out of. It won’t let me get off the page, it won’t let me turn off the phone and when I try to put it on factory mode it says no command as if the page blocked off any way of fixing the problem without paying 500$. My phone is a Kyocera. How do I take it off my phone because it won’t let me do anything?
When your Kyocera is found blocked by a fake FBI OneVanilla $500 Popup stating that you must pay a $500 dollars fine due to your violation of the national law by visiting illegal pornography on the Internet, it means your Kyocera has been attacked by a violent fake FBI prism ransomware, which is also called fake police scam virus. It is a ransomware that always pretends to be from a powerful law enforcement department and accuses the victims of violating national law due to watching illegal porn on the Internet such as child porn video, which needs to be fixed by paying an amount of fine as the payment method it says, or the victims will be taken to justice and put into prison. As a matter of fact, besides Kyocera, the fake FBI prism scam virus is programed by the hackers to compromise various phones or tablets like Samsung, LG, Motorola, HTC, Kindle Fire, ZTE, Huawei, Iphone, Ipad etc.. It is not a country specific virus attack but a worldwide headache. It can attack the devices of users in many nations such as United States, United Kingdom, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Germany, Italy, Russia, and so on by using different variants of the virus. Different variants of the fake FBI prism ransomware may differ from each other in some specific things like the authorities it disguises to be, the specific time of prison sentence you will face if the fine is not paid, the amount of fine the victims are required to pay etc. . For example, the virus pretends to be from the FBI agency in the United States while it will claim to be from Australian Federal Police.
Is the warning pop-up real? It demands to pay a fine of $500 dollars with 48 hours to unlock the device and fix the problem. What should I do? How to unlock your Kyocera without paying the unreal penalty of $500 dollars? It is sure that the fake FBI OneVanilla $500 Popup is not real. The FBI agency or other law enforcement authorities will come to arrest you in your house. You don’t need to pay the nonexistent penalty of $500 dollars. You will not be sentenced in jail. The whole thing is just a scam of the cyber criminals. When your device is attacked by this fake FBI OneVanilla $500 Popup, you should not follow any instructions of the virus and do anything as the virus says. There is no need for you to become too nervous and frightened, because all this is fake. You should stay calm and find an expert in this field to remove the virus off your Kyocera as soon as possible.
