Your computer has been locked by Information Security and Control Act (ISCA) 2012 all of a sudden? You are prevented from anything but an accessible site to enable you pay the alleged “penalty fine $100 or $200” to unlock your PC? Never take this seriously and learn more here to get rid of this scam, rogue, ransomware.
This Information Security and Control Act (ISCA) 2012 virus makes its appearance recently in Ireland and European countries to trick unsuspicious users with some old social engineering tactics. It is another bugger from the FBI Moneypak, or rather the An Garda Síochána-Ireland’s National Police Service ransomware. But it just comes up on the infected computer as so called Information Security and Control Act (ISCA) 2012. Be aware of this bogus warning that claims that the computer user has been involved in illegal activity, such as downloaded or distributed copyrighted material or viewed child pornography, and demands a penalty fine of $ 100 or 200$ be paid to unlock the computer system within the allotted time of 72 hours. It even attempts to scare the user that if the fine is paid in time, the user would be in jail for that its make-up excuse. You all users can just ignore such a nasty notification and find ways to get rid of it instantly because even if you pay that fine, there would be nothing happen but leak of your financial data to hackers.
