Online Scamming to Extort Money Using False FBI Messages

Beware of the Fake FBI Messages on your PC

The rise of internet has brought people from all over the world closer. Now, it is not only easier to interact with people but you can do almost everything online. But along the comforts of internet, comes the nuisances of online scammers.

With a drastic change in how we do our banking and pay for goods and services, millions of people surfing the internet fall victim to hackers and cyber thugs every day.

Yet another incidence has come to light wherein online scammers look forward to thieve you. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has cautioned computer users to ignore a phony message, supposedly from its officers, that freezes computer screens and asks them to pay a fine for visiting undesirable websites.

Ransomware

Reveton ransomware, also known as “drive-by” virus, freezes a user’s computer and display a fake FBI message stating that there was a violation of the federal law and they would have to pay fine for visiting an inappropriate website.

The malware enters a user’s computer thorough an attachment and gets installed when he visits an infected website. Once infected, the victim’s computer freezes immediately, and the monitor displays a screen stating that user’s IP address has been identified by FBI or the Department of Justice’s Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section or any other department for visiting child pornography sites or participating in any other illegal online activity. And to unblock their system, user will have to pay a fine using a prepaid money card service. Or else, criminal charges would be filed against him.

The virus is nothing but a scare ware designed by cyber hooligans and thieves to frighten innocent computer users and extort money from them.

Resolution

Here are the suggestions given by The Internet Crime Complaint Center for the victims of the Reveton virus:

  • Do not pay or provide any personal information.
  • Even if u are able to unfreeze your computer, the malware may still be working in the background, stealing all your personal info like passwords, credit card numbers, photos, videos, etc. File a complaint and look for updates about the Reveton virus on the IC3 website.
  • Get technical help from a computer professional to delete the virus from your computer.

Flame Virus Menace

Flame Virus – Creating Menace

Flame Virus, which created havoc amongst millions of users worldwide, have now been ordered to self-destruct, as reported by Symantec. The virus rumored to be used by the US and Israeli governments as a cyber-weapon to attack computers of the Middle East, has been ordered to self-annihilate.

Another report pouring in from a computer security firm, Kaspersky revealed that the virus has some codes similar to that of Stuxnet virus, which infiltrated the computer systems in Iran, impairing the nation’s nuclear research program.

Facts about Flame

Flame Virus, which is considered as the most dangerous computer virus ever created, was identified last month. Flame virus is a super-sophisticated malware highly efficient in stealing high volumes of data and sends it back to the server.

The notorious virus is capable enough to record keystrokes, steal passwords, take screenshots, turn on microphones, initiate webcams and collect information about discoverable Bluetooth devices.

If Kaspersky Lab’s analysis is trusted, Flame could be categorized as the third major cyber weapon targeting Iran, after the Stuxnet virus that attacked Iran’s nuclear program in 2010, and its data-stealing cousin Duqu.

The notorious virus is believed to have infected more than 600 specific targets in countries including Iran, Saudi Arabia, Israel, Syria, Lebanon and Egypt.

A Suicidal Command

If reports are to be believed, creators of Flame virus can give a self-destruct command known as ‘urgent suicide’, which removes the virus from infected computers before the user realizes, causing its detection more difficult.

As per Symantec, the command and control (C&C) servers has now sent an updated directive to the virus, termed “Flamer” designed to remove it from infected computers. According to the reports, the command would remove all traces of the virus infection from clients’ computer receiving this file.

With ever increasing threats from the cyber world activities, getting a robust technical support service from a reliable entity becomes a mandatory exercise of every business and individuals. PCCare247 can be such an entity providing you with round-the-clock comprehensive online technical support services.

Online privacy/ Online security

Online Protection Mantra

Internet, which was invented to simplify lives of people with its instant approach and quick service delivery, now seems to be troubling them. The internet savvy users, venturing into cyberspace, on a lookout for information and prompt services, are now whining about the thriving security threats.

With threats thronging out in the World Wide Web and rising dependence on internet to fulfill the info needs, it gets almost indispensable for a user to acquire a protection mechanism which minimizes risks and capitalizes individual efforts. Let’s go through some quick conducts to check such risks online:

1.      Get Security Software

A simple security program can protect your computer from viruses, malware, and spywares. You don’t have to shell out your money for better security. Free antivirus software like Avira Free Antivirus or AVG Anti-Virus may just work fine for your computer. Experts recommend procuring a number of free cyber-protection tools instead of getting just one. Also, get a firewall.

2.      Smart passwords

Use passwords that are difficult for cyber-criminals to guess. Use lengthy passwords with combination of symbols and numbers for different accounts. Change your passwords more often. Even the software giant Microsoft recommends changing passwords every three months.

3.      Get cagey of WiFi

Using Public Wi-Fi is convenient, but it’s not certainly the safest. Accessing work email, bank accounts or your social accounts may put your privacy under question, while using free Wi-Fi. Enhance your security by logging into secure sites with web addresses starting with “https”.

4.      Be careful while clicking:

Spam emails can subterfuge as mails from your colleagues or businesses. Don’t click on suspicious links in spam emails as they could be a ‘phishing attack’. Type the website address in a separate browser window in case you wish to check the account. Also do not respond to emails promising to send free gifts won by you, seeking your personal information like Address, Bank Account no., passwords, etc.

5.      Evaluate the risks

Know how your information is being used while surfing online. Learn how the World Wide Web tracks you and use the data. Is your current geographical location visible on your Social Networking accounts? Look for steps to hide it.

6.      Remove your trails

Browsing privately gives user the peace of mind that his information is safe. Put your web browser in ‘Private Mode’. Doing so clears the history and cookies automatically. But the websites visited by you may still know your identity. Using updated versions of search engines like Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome, can further restrict the entry of spywares and malwares into your computer systems.

7.      Intellectual Thinking

Understand the threats.  Don’t click and download frantically. Keep your phones password-protected. Don’t reveal your full name, date of birth, family members’ maiden names, Social Security number and other private information on social networking sites.

These pointers can help computer users build the first protective layer in protecting themselves from cybercrime. But for a complete security shield, it gets mandatory for a user to get professional help from experts. And what better than getting Technical expertise online. A number of premier organizations like PCCare247, that ranks high in the Computer Support arena, provide 24×7 technical support services to millions of computer users worldwide. Get round-the-clock tech support by certified experts at reasonable prices with PCCare247.

Flashback Malware infects Mac Computers

The recently discovered Flashback Malware which is believed to be the biggest Mac malware threat till date gives Apple a tough time. Flashback malware that was found infecting about 600,000 Mac computers worldwide, mostly in the US and Canada, is still believed to be bullying the Mac users.

The Malware

There are reportedly 14 different variations of the Flashback malware. The first 13 versions have been identified as Trojan horses. The most recent version of malicious software, listed as Malware.OSX.Flashback.N by Intego, and .K, exploits a security flaw in Java to install itself on user’s hard drive after visiting infected websites, thereby infecting the Mac machines. Designed to steal private information such as usernames and passwords, Flashback is causing restlessness among the Mac users, raising the question of security.

 

Not Dead Yet

Despite the removal tool released by Apple, the malware continues to exist in about 140,000 Mac machines. Although there has been drop from 600,000 infected machines that were reported earlier this month, the decline is not as good as was expected. According to the Symantec Officials, the rate of removal is slowing. Some believe that the tool is not good enough to remove the malware from the Mac computers. Although a possibility of unawareness of the Mac users about the Malware infection could not be ruled out.

 

Detecting Flashback

Flashback can be detected by observing the characteristics of the IP address behaving like a Flashback botnet. Flashback installs bot malware onto the Mac machine connecting it to the overall Flashback botnet. The Flashback botnet uses a set group of IP destination addresses. If the computer regularly connects to one or all of those IP addresses, the machine is infected.

Although Flashback malware, that is reported to be one of the worst Mac attacks in decades, has stained Apple’s image of invulnerability. Keeping this issue in perspective, it has only affected a tiny percentage of all Mac computers used worldwide.

 

The Fix

Apple released a Flashback malware removal tool recently for OS X Lion users without Java installed in their systems. Currently, Apple doesn’t offer a similar stand-alone tool for earlier versions of the Operating System.

A number of other third party companies like PCCare247 are offering unending Macintosh Support to the Mac users helping them detect and remove the malware from their systems. Not only removal, the organization ensures continuous Tech Support services for your Mac computers.

April 02, 2012: PCCare247, a vogue pacer in online tech support, has got another feather in its cap in the form of Macintosh Support.

Whether its installation related blues, or Wi-Fi, blue tooth device maladies or it’s about getting rid of operating system compatibility issues, the thoroughgoing support package has it all to save Mac users from petite to mammoth quandaries disconcerting them from long time.
