ICE Cyber Crime Center Virus – Removal Instructions
In the event that your computer is not usable and your computer’s screen displays a notice from the ICE Cyber Crime Center stating, “Your computer has been blocked,” your machine has been infected with the ICE Cyber Crime Center virus. The virus can be contracted via many different means. Some of the most popular sources of this virus are websites with malicious intentions and legitimate websites that have been tampered with and hacked by cyber criminals. The ICE Cyber Crime Center virus is also obtainable via spam email. You might recall receiving an email from a trustworthy source, such as FedEx or UPS.
The headline also might have urged you to take immediate action and view an attachment that pertains to a shipment you might have made or been expecting. Once you open the attachment from a questionable email like this, viruses like the ICE Cyber Crime Center virus can make their way onto your computer. Those that use illegal pirating website for commercial software are also vulnerable to this virus. Illegally required programs and software are often packaged with the ICE Cyber Crime Center virus, and it officially makes its way onto the user’s system either once the file has been downloaded or once the illegally acquired software has been installed.
Once the ICE Cyber Crime Center virus has made its way onto your computer, the machine will essentially become non-usable. The screen will appear overcome with a bogus notice claiming to have originated from the government. The notice will list various violations that the user is supposedly guilty of. For example, the violations might include “viewing pornography involving children (under 18 years),” “copyright infringement,” or “the use of unlicensed software.” This virus renders your computer virually useless while it is present on your system. While the computer is turned on, you will be forbidden from accessing your programs or other computer functionalities. Instead, along with viewing the bogus notice, your only option is to unlock your computer by paying a sum of $300-$400 via Moneypak to the ICE Cyber Crime Center.
The criminals behind the ICE Cyber Crime Center virus also designed it to gain unauthorized use of your webcam in order to display what is going on as you read the notice. This is a tactic that the criminals have used to instill an extra layer of fear into users. The ICE Cyber Crime Center virus can also take advantage of the user’s geographical location. Depending on where the user lives, the notice might claim to have originated from a local branch of the government ICE Cyber Crime Center. Either way, this notification is bogus and it is designed to make money off of individuals that have been fooled into thinking they are being punished for supposed illegal online behavior. This message is a scam, and you should, under no circumstances, wire any money to the source of the notification.
