FBI Moneypak

How do I get rid of the FBI Moneypak virus?

Episode 964

Joe from Santa Monica, CA

Joe got bit by the FBI Moneypak virus. Leo says it's a well known ransomware exploit, and all viruses require the user to be complicit in the infection. So, Joe probably went somewhere or downloaded something that enabled the virus to get on his system. Unfortunately no repair can fully remove everything and it's likely what he tried just got rid of the notification and not the actual malware itself. That virus may have invited many other malware exploits to the party, too.
