Vanilla virus

Vanilla virus is a term that has been selected to dub one ransomware infection that enters the system surreptitiously and blocks your access to the system. This name is used because the infection displays a ransom warning according to which the victim, i.e. you, has to pay a fine using Vanilla Reload, Moneypak or Reloadit, all of which are money payment systems. The term MoneyPak has already been used to refer to specific ransomware infections, but it does not mean that the payment service is somehow related to the creation of the threat. In the present case, the term Vanilla virus is used because it is a unique example of one more ransomware infection. This threat should be removed from the computer once noticed on the computer, and this recommendation applies to every single malicious program. Read more »
