NSA virus is also known as Ukash virus, Police virus | Type: Ransomware | Tags: Ukash
Severity scale:  

NSA virus (also known as NSA Internet Surveillance Program virus) is a serious ransomware, which is used by cyber criminals to block down computers and make users pay for unblocking them. So, when PC gets infected with this cyber threat, user immediately loses Internet connection and finds himself/herself disabled when trying to launch legitimate programs. Besides, instead of typical desktop, NSA virus starts showing its professionally-made notification, which reports about various law violations and asks to pay the fine of $300. It presents as official notification from the National Security Agency and accuses users of storing and distributing child pornography, copyrighted content and similar activities. No matter how trustworthy this alert looks for you, you should never believe it. Instead of paying the fine and losing your money, you should remove NSA virus from the system. This is the only thing that helps to remove the block from the system.


NSA virus is distributed via security vulnerabilities found. In most of occasions, it gets inside its target PC system with infected attachments that arrive in misleading emails presenting themselves as notifications from FedEx, eBay and similar companies. Once it gets inside the system, this Trojan horse modifies some of PC’s parameters and locks down the machine. After that, victim starts seeing such warning that covers entire PC’s desktop:

NSA Internet Surveillance Program
Computer Crime Prosecution Section
Your Computer has been locked!
Your computer has been locked due to suspicions of illegal content downloading and distribution.
The downloaded content (photo and video files) was automatically classified as child pornograpjic materials.
Your case can be classified as occasional/unmotivated, according to 17 (U.S Code)
Thus it may be closed without prosecution.Your computer will be unblocked automatically.In order to resolve the situation in an above-mentioned way you should pay a fine of $300 (MoneyPak)

Please, do NOT believe this fake notification that is used to make people pay invented fine! We highly recommend ignoring it and also using a guide given below that will help you remove NSA virus from the system.
