Your PC is Blocked due to at least one of the reasons specified below

The warning message of “Your PC is Blocked due to at least one of the reasons specified below” is part of the FBI MoneyPak scareware client.  We already have a manual removal guide for this threat located at .

As you may of guessed this warning is not real.  It’s a scam made up to trick and scare the user into making a purchase.  This is one of the first malware threats out there that turns on a webcam.  This alone is troublesome.  The purpose of taking the image of you and mentioning the FBI is to really scare the end user into making a purchase to remove the warning.

Over the past 12 years of malware hunting and dealing with thousands of scams online I can tell that this is one of the better scams and I’m sure the makers of this client will be pushing it hard.  Expect a high volume of computers to be infected with this virus threat.
