A friend of my sister got a phone call from a man with an Indian accent who said he represented a company named click2fix. He said she had a virus, yadda yadda yadda, and had her go through all kinds of steps to "verify" that she was infected. He had her visit a "cleaning" website, which then of course infected her computer, and then he started asking for a credit card number to remove it. Long story short, she's come to me for help, and I haven't found any mention of this kind of infection on bleepingcomputer.com, so I'm wondering if anybody else has heard of this or knows what specific bug they're inflicting on people. A Google search has turned up that these guys have been scamming in the UK for at least a year now, but nobody's mentioned the name of any specific virus or trojan that might be used in this extortion. If I can get access to the computer (might be difficult, they live quite a ways away, but they called me because they know I'm good with this stuff) I'll run Malwarebytes and report back here what it found, but for now any experiences you all might have had or pointers in the right direction would be appreciated.
