Wyatt Soulam from The Computer Guy got a chance to talk to KOLO 8 about the FBI/Department of Justice ransomware virus that has been infecting computers in the recent months.
In the report Soulam said, "we have dealt with approximately 50-60 cases and variants of this particular threat since the beginning of the year." If you or someone you know has been a victim of this scam, DO NOT follow the directions on the screen. Instead bring it to the technicians at The Computer Guy who have the tools and experience to remove this and any other malicious software from your computer.
