Anonymous "Your computer has been hacked" virus - how to unlock your computer?

What is Anonymous?

Anonymous "Your computer has been h`acked" is a ransomware infection proliferated by Cyber criminals. This security infection is similar to those seen previously (FBI - Your computer has been locked, etc.) Whilst other similar ransomware infections exploit the names of authorities, and attempt to trick unsuspecting PC users into paying bogus fines for supposedly committing law violations, this particular ransomware orders users to pay a ransom to unblock their computers. It is unlikely that the Anonymous Hackers Group are connected with this ransomware - it is more likely that their name and graphics are exploited by cyber criminals in an attempt to scare PC users into paying a 100 Euro ransom.

It is a scam developed by cyber criminals in the hope that computer users will purchase a license key to remove 'security infections' that are supposedly detected by Microsoft Essentials Security Pro 2013. In fact, the process of a security scan is merely imitated, and this is an empty software shell comprising no virus definition database, scan engine, etc. Furthermore, cyber criminals who created this scam, attempted to make its name and user interface appear as if developed by Microsoft. Microsoft, however, produces only one genuine antivirus program called Microsoft Security Essentials, and this is free of charge. Do not mistake these two programs or you may end up paying for a useless program.
