What Is The FBI Virus?
The FBI virus is ransomware, a form of malware that holds computer systems hostage while posing as the FBI and claim a fine must be paid using payment platforms such as Green Dot Moneypak and Ukash Vouchers.
In January 2012, Sean Doyle of Botcrawl.com discovered templates for variations for the United States and Canada, suggesting that its authors may have been planning to target users in North America. By July 2012, a new variant of Reveton began to spread in the United States, claiming to require the payment of a $100 fine to the FBI using a MoneyPak card. (Source: Wikipedia)
