A friend of mine emailed me earlier asking me if i had ever heard of this Facebook Ransomware.
He was trying to login to his Facebook page and its saying that his account has been blocked. It looks like a real FB page. Its asking for Name, Country, Address, Phone Number, Credit Card info etc.
It says that his account has been blocked due to sending Spam.
I have a screen shot, but its of pretty poor quality. Before telling him to bring it over, i figured id ask here and see if anyone else has seen this.
He says he can log into his FB account under a different user.
He ran malware bytes and it did find a few things. I saw a couple things while searching around such as cleaning your cache and cookies, but i suspect his host file has been altered.
Any suggestions on a good place to start would be appreciated.
