It says something like the cyber police caught me watching child porn and I should pay 10k euros ( yes, 10k ) and send them via my bank account as a fine so they will send me the password to unlock my PC .Can you confirm thisis in the actual BIOS, not anything to do with Windows (or any other OS).
I can't post any screenshots because my pc is stuck in bios due to this virus, but I found an identical massege on the Internet.Upload your pic to imgur.com, and post the BBCode link here.
How do I flash it ?Change harddisk with another to install the new windows...eh. If it is really a hard bios virus, it still can be outplayed via flashing bios (updating or down-dating+-back-updating)
Stupid fishing. I remember the one adressed to me - "we caught you, pervert, watching pervert porn with your camera" ...and I've never had a camera attached to my PC, neither do I watch the pervert porn.
OK....that looks like ransomware, not an actual BIOS issue.Playing Age of Empires 2 HD remaster.
It's legit and I bought it from steam since 2015 .OK....that looks like ransomware, not an actual BIOS issue.
This is within Windows, not the BIOS.
And that "game" was almost certainly the origin of this malware/ransomware.
Oh, and #3....don't do that again with a "remastered" game.
- Recover your whole data from the backup you made before this happened.
- Full wipe and reinstall of the OS and everything else.
