So, I had a person bring in their laptop this morning. Another FBI virus clean, no biggie. Ive seen it a hundred times, or at least I thought I had. I fired this one up, its windows 7, put it in safe mode, it goes white...typical. Then the FBI Virus comes up with its screen and there are actual pictures of child pornography in three windows across the screen. There is not enough brain bleach to help my mind at this point. I did a cursory search on the drive to make sure there was not any actual content and so far I have come up empty, thankfully.
I am wondering though if this is a common variant and if any of you have seen this one pop up? I have never seen this virus actually post pictures of child porn and accuse the user of owning the content. Have you folks seen this?
Edit/Update: I just had a second laptop come in with the Prism variant of this virus. Different placement of the pictures but the same issue. I am guessing this is becoming a "thing" now with these ransom viruses.
