The FBI Virus (aka FBI Moneypack scam) is an aggressive malware that presents itself as an official FBI alert, claiming that your computer is blocked due to Copyright and Related Rights Law violation. The alert attempts to trick you into believing that you have illegally visited or distributed copyrighted content such as videos, music, and software.

This nasty virus locks down your system and you have no means of closing the pop-up alert. The goal is for scammers to trick you into paying $200 to unlock your PC. Rather than paying the $200 and further supporting these cyber criminals, you can follow these step-by-step instructions for removing the FBI virus from your machine.
