(Sorry this is going to be a long post, i would put it on read more however it is becoming risky to go to other peoples blogs so I have just left it)
I have collected as many blogs as possible that I/other people have proven to be blogs linked to the FBI/moneypak virus. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD YOU FOLLOW OR ATTEMPT TO VISIT THEIR BLOG. I recommend noting down these names and blocking them all.
If you click on one of these blogs you are at a high risk of being redirected to a page claiming to be the FBI (or other police agencies specific to your country) explaining to you that your computer has been detained for one of the following reasons:
- viewing/downloading prohibited pornographic material
- pirating copyrighted material
- spreading viruses and being part of online scams
The ransom ware website explains that the only way to escape these charges is by paying a specific sum of money (from 100-500 dollars) through moneypak.
Obviously this website is fake, however it can be scary, especially when it doesn’t let you leave the webpage. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD YOU PAY THE WEBPAGE. Paying them will not free your browser.
Depending on your laptop, this ransom ware can range from being annoying to being pretty dangerous!
If you are a mac user you shouldn’t worry to much. Avoid these pages as much as you can, but if you do find yourself facing this nuisance just force quit and reset your browser. This should rid you of the problem (however I recommend using a virus protector to do a scan of your computer just in case)
On Windows and other computers it is more dangerous as the ransom ware can effect your computer outside of just the browser. It has even been known to turn on webcams!
If you find that your windows computer has been infected visit these webpages on a different device (or check the page now and write down the instructions just in case)
Now a few ways that you can identify whether a blog that has followed/reblogged you is a virus.
- Blogs with these icons are viruses (or are blogs pretending to be viruses to scare you, i recommend not following them either, they sound like meanies).
- If the url looks like a keysmash (random collection of letters and numbers) chances are it is a virus blog
- If you hover over the blogs name and recent post are these or similar it is probably a virus blog.
Note that not all virus blogs have these characteristics. Some do not have an icon or appear to be completely safe. You can even catch this virus off of friends’ blogs thats html has been infected. It is a good idea to check your blogs html for suspicious activity and coding.
If any of these blogs follow you, block them immediately and contact Tumblr.
How to stay safe:
- update/acquire some virus protection software
- DO NOT CLICK ON ANY OF THE BLOGS STATED ABOVE OMG JUST DON’T DO IT
- Avoid visiting other users blogs, even ones that have been safe in the past until this virus dies down.
- Avoid clicking on blogs that have reblogged/liked your posts until this virus dies down.
- Avoid following back until this virus dies down.
It is also a good idea that while this is going on, even if you don’t think your computer has been infected, to avoid online shopping or websites where personal information such as your credit card details/address/important passwords is needed if possible, or use another device to complete these tasks, just in case the virus is using key logging (the virus has done so in the past)
Don’t worry too much about this virus/malware/ransom ware/whatever you want to call it. As long as you exercise reasonable caution you should be safe :) If you have any questions do not hesitate to ask me!
Long post over
So my mother has been missing since Thursday. When I say missing, I mean that I have not heard from her since Wed. January 8th, 2014. She said that she was going to visit a friend in Charleston for the weekend, but I never heard back from her about flights or about who the woman was or anything.
My brother and I were able to go through my mother’s emails and accounts to find out where she could have possibly gone, but where ever she went, we know it was not where she said she was going.
I was out of state until yesterday, and the only communication I had with my immediate family was through the phone and FaceTime with my brother.
According the the hand written note that my mother left her flight home was to land 6am this morning (Jan 14th, 2014) I don’t know why I waited so long to post this…Also found in her email there was an email she sent to herself with flight information. There was no official email confirming a ticket purchase. So where ever she went, my brother and I know that she did not pay for herself.
Her camera and a few pairs of shoes are missing from the house as well, I know what suitcase she used, but I didn’t know where she kept it, so I cannot confirm that she even has one with her.
I found the woman who she was supposed to visit on Facebook, in her messages. Do I message this woman saying that I have not heard from my mother in 5 days and ask if she went to visit her? I really need help, I don’t know what to do. I’m really worried, and my brother is really upset about her disappearing.
The picture is of my mother at my graduation in June 2013, her features have not changed. Please help. Please.
So I still have not heard from my mother, it has been a week. If there is anyway that you can try to get this out. My brother and I would really appreciate it if you could help us out. Tonight we posted something on facebook about her being missing. It got a huge response from people on her page as well as mine.
Please, please help.
