FBI Online Agent Screenlocker

We have been seeing a ton of screen lockers lately. Just today one of our customer calls and states that they believe the FBI has locked out a machine. Upon inspection of course it's just a run of the mill screen locker claiming to be the FBI. I can tell you that the FBI would not tell you to go and get a moneypak to pay for unlocking your machine. In fact the FBI would just come and get the machine to perform forensics and be done with it.

When you see this message it is NOT the FBI. :-) Read r0cket's malware blog to learn how to remove the infection.
