In the past, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware has detected only PUPs, or Potentially Unwanted Programs, that were mostly harmful and deceiving. Our users expected more and so we’ve revised our policy to include PUPs in our database that most of our users find annoying or misleading. Within the next few days, detection for many new variants will be added.

Warning-930x300

With computers and mobile computing devices becoming mainstream comes the ever increasing threat of hackers and other malicious viruses gaining access to your personal information.

Most people think they are safe because they have a free anti-virus program installed (AVG, Avast etc).  In most cases this is not true, while these programs do a very good job of protecting your system, they only provide basic protection.

The Ukash (FBI, Australian Federal Police, New Zealand Police etc) Virus that locks down your computer and informs you that you need to purchase a $50-$100 Ukash voucher is now affecting OS X enabled devices (mostly iMac’s and Macbook’s).

When people get this ransom-ware infection, their computers will be locked by displaying you an alert with full screen message. The warning threatens computer users that they have violated many laws of local government. This message will make you unable to understand what it is all about.
