A close friend of mine has come in contact with a Mandiant U.S.A. Cyber Security virus sometime between the 30th and 31st of October through, I believe, the download of a game from the Android app store. It has infected his Samsung tablet and I’m unsure as to how I can help. He has no other means of getting it off than to click the factory reset button on it and he is really hesitant to doing so. What can/should I do? The “Mandiant U.S.A Cyber Security virus” screen popped up automatically and blocked the Android smartphone, saying you have broken a bunch of laws, and you are “obligated to pay $300” using a MoneyPak card. Every owner of Android phones would have that question and anxiety in them. In a glance, can you identify whether your phone is prone to it? How will you remove Android popup virus? Can’t close the U.S.A Cyber Security warning alert page or power off the phone directly. Please help!
