How does CIA Special Agent 767 Screen Locker work?
When the malicious CIA Special Agent 767 Screen Locker locks your screen, it introduces you to a message that is meant to push you into paying a ransom of $100. A threat is added suggesting that the fee will go up to $500 if you do not pay the fee within five days. According to this message, you are expected to pay the sum in order to receive a key that allegedly can decrypt your personal files, including documents, photos, and videos. Well, the thing is that your files are not actually encrypted, and the screen was locked only to make it impossible for you to check that yourself. Although the CIA credentials are attached to the misleading warning, it is not difficult to realize that cyber criminals are behind it. For one, the message has grammatical errors, and that is a dead giveaway that it is bogus. Second, you are requested to pay the ransom in Bitcoins, which is not the payment method that authentic organizations would ever use. 1GmGBH9ra2dqA8CgRg8a8Rngx4qHb2hLDW is the Bitcoin Address to which you are expected to pay the fee, but, of course, you should not do that.
