Fake PRISM NSA Malware Making the Rounds

It was only a matter of time before it happened.  We’ve seen various law enforcement themed ransomware, from FBI Virus  to the  Department of Justice Virus.

The next version was bound to be related to the NSA’s domestic spying program, PRISM. Sure enough, someone has released malware pretending to be the US government, asking for a $300 ransom to unlock your computer, which has been locked because of illegal activity.



I may be stating the obvious, but if law enforcement wants your computer, they are coming and taking it with a warrant, not locking it down and demanding a ransom. Contact a professional computer repair technician to remove the ransomware and secure your computer against further attacks.
