An Anonymous screen comes up to lock up your computer and displays a message to require you pay via Ukash to unlock the PC? This is totally a scam online. Read more.

This Anonymous screen is related a prevailing trend for online scams-Ukash pay related ransomware. This Anonymous ransomware is basically the same as other scaring ransomware that invades the computer via Trojans to lock the computer screen, display a scaring yet fake message and ask for a pay via prepaid credit card, usually Ukash or Paysafecard, to scam on victim users. Yet such a trick is further more than the loss of money but also the important privacy data like the Ukash credit card data. To make it short and clear, any screens that lock up the entire OS in name of any or just anonymously can be judged as tricky scams online for the sole purpose of extorting money illegally. And the sole solution to this is to remove the virus ASAP.

What Does Anonymous Ransomware Do to a Compromised Computer?


Once settled down, the Anonymous ransomware injects its files and registry entries at the root of the OS and then auto-starts every time the OS boots. The infiltration is quiet and hard to detect by antivirus, firewalls, or other security programs. Technically, Anonymous ransomware runs to forbidden safe mode running meanwhile opens a backdoor to permit remote access of hackers to steal privacy information like the phone number list stored on the infected computer and takes control of the victim computer screen. Then the victim user is locked out from the OS and can only see the displayed fake message that shows as below:

Part of the message reads:

We are Anonymous. We are Legion. We do not forgive. We do not forget. Expect us.
Tango down!
Your computer has been hacked by the Anonymous Hackers Group and locked for the moment. All files have been encrypted. You need to pay a ransom of £100 within 24 hours to restore the computer back to normal. If the ransom is not paid on time all the contents of your computer will be deleted and all your personal information such as your name, address, D.O.B, etc. will be published online, after this has been done the processor, ram and motherboard will be fried. Any attempts to remove this virus will result in the consequences mentioned.



Such is the old trick of locking the computer to ask for a ransom of 100 pounds within certain period, here as 24 hours. Such is fairly a scaring message that claims to destroy the infected computer and get the personal information once the victim user tries to remove it. However, it is just a plain robbery that seems hard to handle. Regardless of all, here we get the solution and will make it learned by you.

If any user come across and is right confronting such a threatening screen, be resolute to follow below removal guide to get rid of such a ransomware safely and efficiently.



To get rid of such Anonymous ransomware infection, please follow below instructions:


Web cam control

    Once infected, there would be a little more than usual that this ransomware virus would even attempt to trick the user into thinking they are under surveillance by webcam, as it always shows a fake screen in “recording” status. Actually this even makes no difference on the infected computer with no web cam at all. Apparently, the truth is ready to jump out at your call.


Deny Flash

Most ransomware exploits Java or Flash vulnerabilities to load the malicious code. In some cases denying or disabling flash on your system may suspend the Anonymous Ransomware viurs and enable the user to navigate through the infected system. If this not a necessity for removal, skip to the removal options below these steps.

I have created a Rescue Disc on USB in accordance with the instructions, but it is not working.
I can get as far as Step 4, but when I select the preferred language an error message relating to an undefined video mode appears and after approx 30 seconds a CD Linux Console is displayed.
Any thoughts on how to get round this problem?

I apologize for any problem caused to you.

From the message, it seems that Anvi Rescue Disk just skip the hard drive. It happens that your
hard drive is not supported by Anvi Rescue Disk and it is unalbe to repair the virus on it.

Could you please try alternative rescue disk to recover your PC?

I would like to recommend you use Kaspersky rescue disk to kill the ransomware virus and unlock your computer.

To get the rescue disk file, please go to link below and download the latest version of rescue disk 10 to recover your computer.

http://support.kaspersky.com/viruses/rescuedisk#downloads

The usage of Kaspersky rescue disk is similar to Anvi Rescue disk. Please have a try.
