Many computers today are being under massive attack of a stubborn, persistent and extremely dangerous virus that is also referred to as DOJ warning virus. This infection belongs to the special group of malwares that is known as ransomware. The reason why this group is called like this is because this malware locks the screen (desktop) of the infected computer and then asks for certain amount of money (ransom) to be paid in favor of the online hackers who elaborated this locker. Department of Justice warning virus is especially spread in the United States of America, Canada and few other English-speaking countries.
Department of Justice warning virus is presented in the form of a special notification supposedly coming from the Federal Bureau of Investigation of the US Department of Justice. However, this well-known US governmental agency isn’t associated with spreading this virus. Be very careful with this alert. It will hijack your desktop and will not let you do anything with your computer. By the way, simply restarting your PC will not do any good service for you. The locked status of your system will persist, no matter how many times you’ve rebooted the computer. The reason why the PC continues to be locked is because hackers haven’t yet completed their mission successfully on your PC. They still wait until you share some of your earnings with them in the form of paying this fine supposedly introduced by DOJ for your “illegal activities” that were supposedly revealed on your system. The ransomware accuses users of downloading illegal copies of audio and video samples, software, visiting the sites of terrorist organizations, supporting terrorist activities, watching and spreading a lot of sinful adult information over the world wide web.
