Canada these days is being massively targeted with a relatively new ransomware hijacker (virus). We said “relatively” because the virus has been encountered in many countries before but it now has a different name, whereas the principles of its malicious activity remained the same. The virus is masked as fake Ministry of Public Safety Canada warning about illegal activities supposedly revealed on your computer (either during your work with it or with the work of other people).

Needless to say, such piece of lie must not be trusted by you. Please pay attention to the information you see below. Here is the fake accusation users could get when surfing the web and eventually being infected with the above-said ransomware Trojan.
