How Did I have this FBI? Is it real?
Before you crap in your pants, know this – by the rules of the constitution, no investigation department is allowed to search through your files without a warrant. So unless, you have an actual officer sitting in your living room, you can be pretty sure it’s a fake FBI cyber crime police virus.
So how does it hack in to the system? Well, the most common known reasons are:
• Accessing malicious websites
• Accessing seemingly legitimate websites that may have been compromised
• Downloading untested software or unverified content
• Accessing peer – peer file sharing websites, etc.
But till now the exact reason is quite unknown, since the virus enters the system stealthily, even when working offline. And the Police Cybercrime Investigation Department virus is almost never detected by the Anti-virus package as well. Even if it did, it would be too late, since the whole system would have been compromised by then and you would have been locked out. And they are all related to laws mostly Copyright and Related rights Laws. By stating that your online activities have been violating certain rules of laws and threatening to you about the criminal cases that might be initiated against you, it tries to deceive you into paying the requested amount of fines. Through this way, hackers not only get the fines but also collect your personal information at the same time. It is very dangerous! Some people may still wonder how can they get their money back.
