I realise this isn't technically an icefilms problem but let me share this with you regardlessly!
Yesterday I was going to watch a series through a 180upload link and as soon as I clicked play I got a screen which you could not get out of (no alt + f4, no close, minimize etc buttons, nothing).
The screen claimed to be the cyber department of the dutch police (I am in The Netherlands), and said that I had illegal content on my computer, either illegal downloads or child pornography. It listed parts of the law and how much jailtime I would be looking at etc. My webcam turned on and I could see myself 'being recorded'. Then it went on to say that if I didn't transfer 100 euro's via uKash or Paysafe within a day my computer would remain blocked.
I didn't make a screenshot myself and haven't been able to find one exactly like the one I encountered. But this is sort of what it looked like (except that this one is also Belgian-French);http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-ktK-xbwPo0s/T ... ransom.png
EDIT: Found my versionhttp://i1171.photobucket.com/albums/r55 ... erland.png
Props to whoever designed that virus, because my version actually looked really legit. Until I came to the section that asked me to transfer 100 euro's ofcourse :P How to fix
If this happens to you as well, here's what you do.
1. Shut down the computer. You have to do this by holding down the power button, since you won't be able to access the start menu.
2. Restart and choose to enter safe mode with network capabilities/veilige modus met netwerk (not sure if that's the correct english term as well).
3. Go to the start menu >> System Restore (Systeem Herstel). Go through the steps and choose a point in time before the virus infected your computer.
4. Finish all the steps and restart your computer if it doesn't do so automatically.
Also, after this my mozilla would crash after about 15 seconds without fail. So I had to reinstall firefox and it's currently running without any problems. I would also advise running some malware detection or antivirus programme to get rid of the temp files the virus creates.
Didn't know whether to make a separate topic or post it in here, but thought it might help some people out! As far as I've seen this virus only has a dutch, french and belgian version, so I'm not sure how relevant this is for US/UK people.
