If your computer is locked, and you are seeing a &#;Attention! Your computer has been blocked up for safety reasons&#; notification from the Mandiant U.S.A Cyber Security, then your computer is infected with a piece of malware known as Trojan Urausy.
Mandiant MoneyPak scam
The Mandiant virus is distributed through several means. Malicious websites, or legitimate websites that have been hacked, can infect your machine through exploit kits that use vulnerabilities on your computer to install this Trojan without your permission of knowledge.
Another method used to propagate this type of malware is spam email containing infected attachments or links to malicious websites. Cyber-criminals spam out an email, with forged header information, tricking you into believing that it is from a shipping company like DHL or FedEx. The email tells you that they tried to deliver a package to you, but failed for some reason. Sometimes the emails claim to be notifications of a shipment you have made. Either way, you can&#;t resist being curious as to what the email is referring to &#; and open the attached file (or click on a link embedded inside the email). And with that, your computer is infected with the Mandiant virus.
The threat may also be downloaded manually by tricking the user into thinking they are installing a useful piece of software, for instance a bogus update for Adobe Flash Player or another piece of software.
The Mandiant virus is also prevalent on peer-to-peer file sharing websites and is often packaged with pirated or illegally acquired software.

Once installed, the Mandiant MoneyPak virus will display a bogus notification that pretends to be a joint effort between Mandiant, the FBI, USA Cyber Crime Center, Department of Justice, and Interpol, and states that your computer has been blocked due to it being involved with the distribution of pornographic material, SPAM and copyrighted content.

The Mandiant virus will lock you out of your computer and applications, so whenever you&#;ll try to log on into your Windows operating system or Safe Mode with Networking, it will display instead a lock screen asking you to pay a non-existing fine of  $ in the form of a MoneyPak or MoneyGram voucher.
Furthermore, to make this alert seem more authentic, this virus also has the ability to access your installed webcam, so that the bogus Mandiant  notification shows what is happening in the room.

If your computer is infected with the Mandiant MoneyPak virus, this infection will display a localized webpage that covers the entire desktop of the infected computer and demands payment for the supposed possession of illicit material.
Mandiant lock screen virus
Cyber criminals often updated the design of this lock screen, however you should always keep in mind that the Mandiant or FBI will never lock down your computer or monitor your online activities.

The message displayed by the threat can be localized depending on the user’s location, with text written in the appropriate language.

Mandiant U.S.A. Cyber Security

U.S.A. Cyber Crime Center
Interpol

System Restore helps you restore your computer&#;s system files to an earlier point in time. It&#;s a way to undo system changes to your computer without affecting your personal files, such as e‑mail, documents, or photos.
Because the Mandiant virus will not allow you to start the computer in Windows regular mode, we will need to start System Restore from the Safe Mode with Command Prompt mode.

STEP 1: Restore Windows to a previous state using System Restore

  1. Reboot your computer into Safe Mode with Command Prompt. To do this, turn your computer off and then back on and immediately when you see anything on the screen, start tapping the F8 key on your keyboard.

On the next screen, you will need to click on the Troubleshoot option, then select Advanced Options and select Windows Startup Settings. Click on the Restart button, and you should now be able to see the Advanced Boot Options screen.
  2. Using the arrow keys on your keyboard, select Safe Mode with Command Prompt and press Enter on your keyboard.

  4. System Restore should start, and you will display also a list of restore points. Try using a restore point created just before the date and time the Mandiant lock screen virus has infected your computer.

We will then boot your computer using this bootable USB drive and use it to clean the infection so that you are able to access Windows normally again.
You will also need a USB drive, which will have all of its data erased and will then be formatted. Therefore, only use a USB drive that does not contain any important data.

  1. Using a &#;clean&#; (non-infected) computer, please download HitmanPro Kickstart from the below link.

    To create a bootable HitmanPro USB drive, please follow the instructions from this video:
  3. Now, remove the HitmanPro Kickstart USB drive and insert it into the Mandiant infected computer.
  4. Once you have inserted the HitmanPro Kickstart USB drive, turn off the infected computer and then turn it on. As soon as you power it on, look for text on the screen that tells you how to access the boot menu.
    [Image: Windows Boot Menu screens]
    The keys that are commonly associated with enabling the boot menu are F10, F11 or F12.
  5. Once you determine the proper key (usually the F11 key) that you need to press to access the Boot Menu, restart your computer again and start immediately tapping that key. Next, please perform a scan with HitmanPro Kickstart as shown in the video below.

When the first time I saw it, I was scared to death and thought it was real. The virus is asking me to pay a dollar fine or they will take legal action against me. It says to pay using moneypack.

Mandiant U.S.A. Cyber Security Virus On Android Phone? &#; How to Unlock?

Now a fresh strain of criminal software has been discovered encrypting the data of Android smartphone owners, then demanding payment to unlock it. It is really horrible for the victims. Mandiant U.S.A. Cyber Security Virus is one of the malicious ransom software designed by hackers to trick victims into sending in money by lock their computers or phones. Most smartphone users may consider phone is safe enough so they prefer doing bank transfer or online payment via phones. However, since android becomes to be the world’s most widely used mobile operating system (OS), it continues to be a primary target for malware attacks. This piece of malware installs itself onto the computer by disguising as an adobe player app or interesting game, once you are taken in this trick and download this app, your phone will immediately be locked up. You also may get this virus by clicking malicious links or visiting porno sites.

Once it is loaded, you will not able to access any apps on your phone anymore. There is a warning taking over your android phone screen that says &#;Attention! Your phone has been locked up for safety reasons listed below.&#; It misleads the victims into thinking they have violated several laws such as viewing or storing prohibited pornographic content (child porn, zoophillia). The warning states that your phone has been blocked due to its involvement in copyright violations including the use of unlicensed app, the distribution of illegally obtained files, the distribution of child pornography, and also the participation in spam emailing. To further make the warning appear as if it comes directly from Mandiant U.S.A. Cyber Security, it even displays the real logos and seals on the virus page. In addition, on the top right corner it displays the picture of Obama who is pointing at you as if he is blaming you for your illegal activities. The virus also turns on your camera automatically, it tries to scare you and make you think that someone is watching and recording you. All of these scare tactics are used to trick innocent users into paying a fine of $ via Moneypak. In order to push the person into quickly sending the payment the message states that the payment must be received within 24 hours, otherwise the phone will be blocked up forever and criminal case will be opened against yourself.

Mandiant U.S.A. Cyber Security Virus scam uses these hefty fines and legal actions as a way to really scare the computer users. From what the fake warning says, the target users can quickly pay the $ and avoid all of the other potential charges. It is % sure that the message is not coming from the police or any other authorities. Government will never punish a person by locking his computer and ask payment via pre-paid cards like Moneypak, Moneygram, Ukash or Paysafecard. This virus is tricky because it leaves the victim little time to research whether this is real or only a scam, therefore many innocent users paid for the fine and lost their money finally, with the phone still locked up. Simply sending $ is not worth unlocking your phone because it can do nothing helpful for you, it neither help unlocking your phone, nor removing the malware exists on your phone. Now a large percentage of users have fallen for this scam. If your android phone has been locked up by this virus, don&#;t pay anything. Instead, please follow the guide below to get it unlocked.

Please Contact YooCare 24/7 Online PC Expert now if you don&#;t know how to start the removal on your phone.

If your computer is infected, your camera may turn on automatically. It makes you into thinking your picture has been taken and sent to Mandiant U.S.A. Cyber Security, or other authorities like FBI is now watching what you are doing. The fake warning will lock your device forever and block you from doing anything. As mentioned above, we can see how this scam works to deceive innocent users. It is good at using scare tactic to extract money from victims. Hence, users must get rid of Mandiant U.S.A. Cyber Security Virus from the Android phone as soon as possible.

A Step-by-step Manual Removal Guide On Android Phone

1. Restart your phone to safe mode.

Note: &#;Safe Mode&#; on Phone starts up without loading any third-party add-ons and different devices have different ways to access safe mode.

For example:

For Samsung Galaxy S4: 1. Power down. 2. Turn on and repeatedly tap the soft-button for &#;Menu.&#;

For Samsung Galaxy S3 and others: 1. Power down. 2. Turn on, then press and hold Volume Down (Galaxy S3 and others), Volume Up (HTC One and others), or Volume Down and Volume Up together (various Motorola devices) when the vendor&#;s logo appears.

If you have managed to select Safe Mode, you will see the text &#;Safe Mode&#; at the bottom left corner of the screen.

Android-Safe-Mode

2. Once you have put your phone in safe mode, contact an expert for further removal instruction.

Now numerous users were shocked to find their devices had been hacked and locked a message from Mandiant U.S.A. Cyber Security. This is an online fraud designed by hackers who aim for grabbing money from innocent smartphone users. Although the message is under the name of Mandiant U.S.A. Cyber Security, FBI, Department of Defense and U.S.A. Cyber Crime Center, in fact it has nothing to do with these legal authorities. We&#;ve seen a rash of new ransomware malware showing up on Android devices recently like PCEU Virus, FBI Virus, AFP Virus and GVU Virus etc. Even though you didn&#;t do anything illegal, you will be the target of this malware still. As long as the virus is landed on your phone, it takes over the whole android phone screen and won&#;t go away, hoping to strongarm you into paying a ransom for some sort of deactivation code that will give you back control of your computer. Don&#;t pay anything to this hoax or you will experience money loss and possible identify theft. The above guide will help you unlock your phone.

Note: Manual removal is a skillful and risky job, if any mistakes are made in the process, you may damage your phone immediately. If you are not sure how to do, please contact YooCare PC experts 24/7 online for help right now.

The Mandiant U.S.A. Cyber Security Ransomware is part of the Troj/Urausy Ransomware family of computer infections that displays a lock screen when you start Windows that requires you to pay a ransom before you will be allowed to access your Windows desktop, applications, or files. This ransomware pretends to be a joint effort between Mandiant, the FBI, USA Cyber Crime Center, Department of Justice, and Interpol to block computers that have been involved in illegal cyber activity. This activity includes the distribution of pornography, copyrighted files, or computer viruses. It goes on to state that you need to pay a fine in the amount of $ within 48 hours or you will face legal prosecution. It is important to note that this is a computer infection and you are not actually being targeted by these agencies.

In order to send the ransom you will be required to purchase a MoneyPak or MoneyGram voucher at a store like Kmart, CVS, Walmart, or Walgreens and submit the voucher ID in the lock screen. The malware developers state that once they receive the money, they will automatically unlock your screen so that you can access your Windows desktop again. As this lock screen is not a legitimate message from any government agency, please ignore it and continue reading the removal guide to remove this threat for free.
