removal by Linas Kiguolis - -   Also known as Ukash virus, Police virus | Type: Ransomware

White Screen FBI virus is a dangerous ransomware, which can also be called as a renewed version of FBI virus. When infected with this threat, you will notice a white screen instead of your logon screen or a misleading warning, which blocks the whole system. If you see a completely white screen, that means that ransomware failed to load properly. However, if you see a notification, virus is active and it will do its best to convince you to pay a fine of $300 via Moneypak or other prepayment system. For that, White Screen FBI virus firstly reports about various law violations that were supposedly noticed by FBI. It may accuse you of watching pornographic material, using copyrighted content or simply spreading malware. After that, virus asks to pay a fine via Moneypak, Ukash or other legitimate prepayment system and promises that this will unblock victim's computer. Remember, if you see a such warning, you must ignore it because it's nothing else but a hoax.


White Screen FBI virus is distributed in the same way as other ransomware viruses. According to experts, it closely relies on trojan horse, which exploits security vulnerabilities for getting inside the system undetected. Once this virus enters the PC, it downloads malicious files that belong to White Screen FBI virus and locks it down. As a result, user sees a white screen with the mouse cursor or this fake notification that accuses him/her of viewing videos that are related to child pornography. Please, ignore this fake warning message and never pay the money via Moneypak. In order to fix your computer, you have to remove White Screen FBI virus from the system without any delay.
