What Is the FBI Porn Virus Like? FBI Cyber Bug or FBI Cyber Lock?

The FBI porn virus has been confirmed by many technicians in the computer security area to be a type of ransomware which is a little different from the kind of ransomware like the the worldwide WannaCry ransomware attack on May 12, 2017 and the 2017 NotPetya cyberattack on June 27, 2017 that encrypt the data of the victims and demand a payment via Bitcoin. The FBI porn virus is developed by hackers to cheat money from victims by locking up the infected phones or tablets. It pretends to be a law enforcement agency like the police department of the country and requires the victims to pay a nonexistent fine ranging from $100 to $500 USD due to accessing illegal pornographic content like child porn. If the fine is not paid, the virus threatens to take the victims into justice and they will suffer a 5-8 year prison sentence. FBI, the abbreviation of Federal Bureau of Investigation, is a well-known law enforcement agency in United States. The cyber criminals who develop the FBI porn virus take advantage of this agency by stealing the logo and title of it to drive victims into horror and panic so that they can move to pay the unreal fine as fast as they can. This trick is really nasty. And it is reported that some victims end up falling into the trap and paying the fine finally as the FBI porn virus required. Some users may have watched the pornographic content; some may have not. However, it does not change anything that the FBI porn message is actually a scam virus in essence. Nobody can put you in jail. You can unlock your phone or tablet at rather lower cost in a more reliable way by turning to an expert in the field to completely remove the virus. So if your device is found infected with the FBI porn virus, you should keep yourself calm and talk to an expert in the cyber security area as soon as possible instead of becoming so nervous as to suffer a financial loss by paying the unreal fine without getting anything better.
