YOUR BROWSER HAS BEEN BLOCKED - how to remove this ransomware virus?
"Your browser has been blocked," "All activities on this computer have been recorded", and "All your files are encrypted" are messages that can appear whilst browsing the Internet. Note that these messages are not legitimate. Browser blocking pop-ups, demanding payment of $300, 200 GBP, or 200 Euro fines (using Ukash, PaySafeCard or GreenDot MoneyPak) to unlock computers, are not associated with any legitimate authorities. The messages are created by cyber criminals with the intention of stealing money from unsuspecting Internet users. Paying fines demanded by these browser-blocking messages is equivalent to sending money directly to cyber criminals.
