Ransomeware: FBI Virus
The FBI virus is one of the latest and widely spreading pieces of malware that has taken over the internet over the last few weeks. As the name suggest, it appears as an official FBI alert claiming that your computer has been suspected for some malicious activity and has been locked for investigation. This malware tries to fool you in believing that you have visited some website or downloaded any kind of illegal content like non-copyrighted music or videos.
It is a very dangerous virus as once it comes up there is no way to close that pop up and it locks down your computer demanding for $200 to unlock. This type of malware is considered Ransomware, just like our next threat.

Todays Final Threat: Loyphish
Loyphish is a phishing page that is used to steal your login information. It acts as a legitimate banking page and tricks you into filling a simple form thinking that you are submitting information to your bank but instead you submit all this information to the hacker. This kind of virus can be very difficult to identify as with the use of legitimate images and videos, it will assure you that you are providing information to a legitimate source.
These were the three main malwares famous nowadays and to protect your computer against such malwares, it is recommended to install a proper antivirus program and ensure that firewall is enabled on your computer. We recommend Kaspersky or Malwarebytes.
