Computer blocked due to series of reasons that sound weird and scaring?? –Attention! Your PC is blocked due to at least one of the reasons specified below warning come to your sight and perplexed you? Don’t that such fake warning of ransomware infection serious. Read for more.
Many users, primarily of countries in the West, suffer from serious ransomware virus attacks that target a lot of computers in the network. The primary message of each ransomware locker says this: “Attention! Your PC is blocked due to at least one of the reasons specified below”. The locker then gives some reasons, which are all very poorly grounded. There’s a large list of faulty accusations, and all of them, beyond any doubt, must be utterly ignored by users whose systems became vulnerable.
There are many families of ransomware lockers crossing around the world these days. The two major families are called Reveton and Urausy. Depending on the day, either of them (or both) becomes active. The purpose of these lockers is to scare users to death with a lot of deceitful statements. In particular, the faulty accusation says that users were traced to perform a lot of illegal activities online, beginning from watching forbidden content and ending up with supporting terrorist organizations. Sometimes these faulty accusations are even ridiculous, yet certain users may be really frustrated with their contents.
Ransomware begs for money. Well, “begs” is not a really correct word in this case. In fact, the locker prompts users to paying the ransom amount, supposedly as the fine in favor of the local police body. Yet, the police has nothing to do with this scary message, that’s for sure.
If you’re the citizen of the United States of America (where ransomwares are especially popular), or of any other European or non-European country, there’s a chance for your PC to be attacked by this scam. Hackers primarily attack those countries where they expect to get the most of funds through deceiving users.
