Is your phone or tablet blocked by a police threat? Have you been fined by a FBI waring on mobile device for watching illegal porn? Are you wronged by an unexpected popup while browsing on your tablet? If your answer is “Yes”, your device has been attacked by a dangerous virus. The warning is not sent from the FBI. It has nothing to do with the real police or any other legit agency. Instead, it is made up by the hackers to scare you.
Many victims lost money due to this FBI virus. They believed that the FBI warning is real, thinking that they were in trouble with the police. In a way, the warning looks authentic. It has the logo and seal of FBI. On the waring page, it claims the police scanned your device and detected some suspicious files. You have been caught due to attendance of the forbidden pornographic sites. Some pornographic images also are displayed on your screen. It says those images are the proof that you violated related law. Specific laws are listed, telling what punishment you will receive. In order to make it look real, it collects your basic information, such as name, location, IP address, device, contacts, and picture etc. and shows them on the warning page. That makes victims think it is the police who are able to monitor their activities and grab the information. Besides, the FBI virus blocks the device completely and does not allow you to do anything, like someone is controlling it. It does not go away though you turn off the device for a long time. It still comes back right after you turn it on again.
The nasty virus tries everything that it can do to steal your money and damage your device. After it accesses your device, it changes phone settings without your permission. Soon enough, your screen is taken over by a “horrible warning”. You can’t access the apps or the home screen. It is not a normal popup. No option is provided to quit the page and will not disappear though you restart the device many times. It can be worse. Sometimes, you even can’t turn off the device. The power button does not work due to the FBI virus. Besides, it sets a PIN number to your device. According to the victims, the virus changes their PIN code. They couldn’t unblock the device with the exact PIN code they set. That is so desperate. Also, the virus is able to run your camera and take a picture of your face, saying that your location and snapshots of your face have uploaded on the FBI Cyber Crime Department’s datacenter. It requires a penalty of 500 USD. In order to make sure that you will pay the fine, it threatens that you will be taken to the court and spend years in jail if you try to unblock the device without paying the fine. That’s how the virus scares you into paying a non-existed fine.
