FBI Skype Virus Accusing People of Child Pornography and Making them Pay $200

October 06, 2012 @ 20:07:10
K so sum shit be goin down.
A few days ago, i got a message saying this
[10/3/2012 9:53:05 PM] Megan: lol is this your new profile pic? http :// goo. gl/MFaJi?img=(my skype name)
i broke the link and put a space in between it so nobody accidentally clicks it

Anyways I see this on tumblr (inb4tumblrjoke)
"If you get a message from a Skype contact that looks like this:

lol is this your new profile pic? http :// goo. gl/MFaJi?img=(your skype name)

DO NOT CLICK THE LINK. It’s ransomware that will lock your computer up, accusing you of possession of child pornography, and threaten to alert the authorities unless a $200 payment is made. And then pass the link along to all your Skype contacts.

SERIOUSLY, DON’T CLICK IT."

but i clicked the link when that chick sent me it. i thought it was one of those things that links you to your fb account (computer newb alert)
its been 3 days and nothing has happened, but i have to do a project today and i dont want it to pop up in the middle of me working and then i lose my shit. so ill be using another computer.

heres the tumblr link to the article http://aidiera.tumblr.com/post/32930125871 and no, that is not a virus.

thanks cuz. im trying to get someone computer savvy to help me out with this. running a virus scan at the moment but i heard you need to remove it manually because only some virus scanners find it.

if anyone here is good with computers and can help me through those steps, because i tried it and its not working then hit me with a PM

Was just about to recommend this. This is why I keep multiple backups of my shit on lock at all times. Never know what could happen when. Better to lose a week's worth of use rather than the whole enchilada.

I'm surprised this wasn't done earlier, or was it?
October 07, 2012 @ 03:51:33

just so you know if any fool tries to take over your computer just unplug your modem/router and run a virus check offline until everythings clear

Does this program actually put CP on your computer?

If not, tell them to fuck off.

Even IF it does, the authorities should know about this shit by now. There shouldn't be an issue either way.

Authorities know but apparently it's a very organized virus and they're still tracing it

Twitter needs to get off their ass and find a way to stop the spam. I get literally 100 of these shits a day but I'm smart enough to have never clicked them.
