Your computer has been locked! What to do?
Green dot Moneypak Virus developers are getting richer day by day. They earn thousands of dollars every single day. The family of notorious Ukash viruses seems to be a profitable business, because new samples of ransomware programs are released almost every day. It is strange a little bit that many users become victims of these scammers although it is a well-known fact that police authorities do not collect fines in such way. They do not have a jurisdiction that would allow them to lock computers.
