My bud's retired ol' dad called me in a panic on Friday... "I think I'm in trouble!"
Now, y'gotta understand, he's completely new to computers, period, plus he's tech-paranoid...
Anyway, he says "My computer says the FBI locked my files and I gotta pay a $300 fine via WalMart greendot!"
What this doesn't show is the full color official FBI graphic on top of the screen that's photoshopped in.
His computer was locked up tight, so I had him force shutdown and restart, and it didn't come back until I went over today to check it out.
That screen pops up immediately if ewe click IE in Windoze 8.Ransomware
