FBI Online Agent and its alert titled 'FBI Online Agent has blocked your computer for security reason' is a huge scam, which has nothing to do with the Federal Bureau of Investigation. In fact, this is a ransomware virus that seeks to swindle the money from its victims. FBI Online Agent clearly targets US people. However, we have already notified about other versions that seek to rip European users as well. In reality, it belongs to a group of hackers who have been releasing their viruses almost every day, so FBI Online Agent acts just like its predecessor FBI virus. After getting inside the PC, it locks the entire system and displays its misleading alert. This notification claims that FBI Online Agent has blocked your computer for security reasons and asks to pay the fine in order to unblock it. For that, this threat offers to use Moneypak prepayment system and enter the code at the buttom of the poge. Don't believe these promisses that this will unblock your computer! You must simply remove FBI Online Agent virus from the system as soon as possible.

HOW CAN I GET INFECTED WITH FBI Online Agent virus?

FBI Online Agent virus is distributed by trojan horse, which mostly uses a fake warning saying that user has to update his Flash Player. Besides, some people have reported that it uses spam emails that look officially and use FBI logos. As soon as it gets inside, this program locks the PC with its warning. As a result, you can't do anything with your computer because it's simply blocked. FBI Online Agent's victim sees only this notification:

FBI Online Agent has blocked your computer for security reason
