Unlock Computer from Malex Ransomware (FBI Moneypak Virus Removal Guide)

Postby Sophia » 2012-08-24 5:07


Since FBI moneypak virus/ransomware is in the while for such long, there comes a new update of it named Malex ransomware/virus as shown below. It plays around its old trick-fake FBI warnings for the sole purpose of extorting money from unsuspicious users. This newly threat has been threatening hundreds and thousands of computers on the Internet now and everyone should just take attention.

As other ransomware (FBI moneypak, Police Central E-crime Unit, etc) do, it compromises weak-guarded computers via Trojans (such as the Cietal malware or Reveton, Wooslf ) to lock the computer from any normal use and then attempts to misguide the user to pay a fine of $ 200 via moneypak with some entirely nonsense talk-scaring violation of laws. And this Malex ransomware purports to scare users by stating like this:


Your PC is blocked due to at least one of the reasons specified below.
ATTENTION!
You have been violation Copyright and Related Rights Law (Video, Music, Software) and illegally using or distributing copyrighted contents, thus infringing Article 1, Section 8, Clause 8, also known as the Copyright of the Criminal Code of United States of America.
Article 1, Section 8, Clause 8 of the Criminal Code provides for a fine of two to five hundred minimal wages or a deprivation of liberty for two to eight years.
You have been viewing or distributing prohibited Pornographic content (Child Porno/Zoophilia and etc). Thus violating article 202 of the Criminal Code of United States of America. Article 202 of the Criminal Code provides for a deprivation of liberty for four to twelve years.
Illegal access has been initiated from your PC without your knowledge or consent, your PC may be infected by malware, thus you are violating the law on Neglectful Use of Personal Computer. Article 210 of the Criminal Code provides for a fine of up to $100,000 and /or deprivation of liberty for four to nine years.
Pursuant to the amendment to Criminal Code of United States of America of May 28, 2011, this law infringement (if it is not repeated – first time) may be considered as conditional in case you pay the fine to the States.
Fines may only be paid within 72 hours after the infringement. As soon as 72 hours elapse, the possibility to pay the fine expires, and a criminal case is initiated against you automatically within the next 72 hours!
To unlock the computer, you must pay the fine through Moneypak of 200$.
How do I unlock computer using MoneyPak?
1. Find a retail location near you.
2. Look for a MoneyPak in the prepaid section. Take it to the cashier and load it with cash. A service fee of up to $4.95 will apply.
3. To pay fine, you should enter the digits MoneyPak resulting code in the payment form and press Pay MoneyPak.
When you pay the fine, your PC will get unlocked in 1 to 48 hours after the money is put into the State account. In case an error occurs, you'll have to send the code by email fine@fbi.gov ( Do not forget to specify IP address )



Never let this fool you and it is entirely fake and malicious. To convince you, it even display your accurate IP address and you can just bear in mind, this is its trick to make you believe and you are supposed to never trust it. Let me tell you the truth, even if you pay to unlock your computer, you would get nothing but further leak of your credit card data and this will make you facing risky potentials even more.

To specify it clearly, if you unfortunately come across this ransomware like the above shows, hold on to get calm and you are lucky here to get the solutions.
