Mandiant U.S.A Cyber Security Ransomware Removal Guide

The Mandiant U.S.A. Cyber Security Ransomware is part of the Troj/Urausy Ransomware 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.
