Virus that says you are under FBI Surveillance


My boss said his kid downloaded a movie and when he opened it up, a big screen came up saying he is under surveillance of the FBI for downloading kiddie porn. I told him I would come over this weekend to try and clean up the virus.
Is there anything in particular I should put on a jump drive before heading over? I figure I will put ComboFix. One of my former patients told me she had the same thing happen last year, but I don't remember what she used to clean it up.

Had a friend that this happened to. He said that there was an actual screen shot of him from his webcam on the screen, and then the FBI message. I'm not sure what he did to fix it, but I think it was all pretty basic stuff and he is no techie.

Boss's wife was freaking out quite a bit and his 14 yr old son didn't know what to say. I imagine it was a comical scene

re: Virus that says you are under FBI Surveillance


in order:
safe mode + malwarebytes + a spyware/spybot (several out there to choose from).
search for and delete cftmon.exe and cftmon.lnk
use ccleaner to clean registry and temp files

its a trojan downloader, so the more times it has been booted up with an active internet connection the more shite that will have been downloaded. i have seen a few times where the HDD needs to be removed and scanned on an external to get rid of it all.

FBI MoneyPak virus.

Can get rid of it with a system restore if it is an easy one. My 2nd MoneyPak virus locked up the entire computer, even safe mode so I had to pitch it

fricking lol, dude. Spybot is worthless these days.

Combofix followed by Malwarebytes. If it's rooted so badly that ComboFix can't handle it, pull the drive and scan from another machine w/ KAV then put it back in, run ComboFix and Malwarebytes.

Does this mean your pic is out there in places you don't want it in?

Is it sent to the creeps who made the virus? And could it be used against you?

I just covered up the built in webcam on my laptop thanks to this.

I had it for 4 years and wanted an upgrade. After I couldn't even get into safe mode, I decided that was my excuse for a new one
