ICSPA - Votre ordinateur a été verrouillé Virus

Also Known As: ICSPA Ransomware
Damage level: Severe

What is ICSPA - Votre ordinateur a été verrouillé?

This Message, purportedly sent from the FBI CyberCrime Division and International Cyber Security Protection Alliance, demands that the user pays a 200 Euro fine in order to unlock the computer. This is a scam, a ransomware infection targeting PC users predominantly from France.

Computer users should be aware that neither the FBI nor any other international authority or organization use screen-locking messages to collect fines for any law violations. These messages are used by cyber criminals to extort money from unsuspecting PC users who fall for their trickery and pay the bogus fine using Ukash or PaySafeCard.

This deceptive message states that computer users must pay the fine for allegedly watching child-related pornography or using pirated content such as videos, music, software, etc. These statements are false. Cyber criminals responsible for creating this scam use this deceptive text to scare PC users into believing that they have committed a crime.

FBI CyberCrime Division ATTENTION ! - Votre ordinateur a été verrouillé et toutes les données sont cryptées ! Virus

Commonly, ransomware viruses are localized so that the deceptive screen-blocking messages are translated into various languages. For example, computer users from the USA, with operating system's infected with this particular ransomware, receive the deceptive message in English as if sent by The United States Department of Justice.

If you see the message, "ATTENTION ! Votre ordinateur a été verrouillé et toutes les données sont cryptées!", on your computer screen, your operating system is infected with a ransomware virus. Do not trust it. The correct way to deal with this message is to remove it from your system.

The FBI and ICSPA "ATTENTION ! Votre ordinateur a été verrouillé et toutes les données sont cryptées!" ransomware virus is distributed via exploit kits. In this way, cyber criminals are able to infect computers using any security vulnerabilities detected.

To protect your PC, always keep your operating system and installed software (Flash, Java, etc.) up-to-date and use legitimate antivirus and anti-spyware software. If your computer is already infected with this ransomware virus, use the removal guide provided to eliminate this scam from your PC.
