Mandiant U.S.A Cyber Security Ransomware Removal Guide
The Mandiant U.S.A. Cyber Security Ransomware is part
family of computer infections that displays a lock screen when you
start Windows that requires you to pay a ransom before you will be
allowed to access your Windows desktop, applications, or files. This
ransomware pretends to be a joint effort between Mandiant, the FBI, USA
Cyber Crime Center, Department of Justice, and Interpol to block
computers that have been involved in illegal cyber activity. This
activity includes the distribution of pornography, copyrighted files, or
computer viruses. It goes on to state that you need to pay a fine in
the amount of $300 within 48 hours or you will face legal prosecution.
It is important to note that this is a computer infection and you are
not actually being targeted by these agencies.
