BSA virus is an obstinate computer infection designed to trick you into thinking that the Business Software Alliance (BSA) has been monitoring the computer. The user is provided with alleged accusations saying that illegal activities have been observed. They are supposedly related to using and storing pirated software, audio and video files. This false information is presented in a form of a message which appears after the virus paralyzes the computer.

According to message displayed, the user has to pay 250 dollars to unlock the computer; otherwise, special measures will be taken. Moreover, the charge has to be paid through MoneyPack, according to the message. As far as we know, there is an online payment service MoneyPak but not MoneyPack. The mistake in the message may suggest that there is something suspicious about this BSA message. If you find the following excerpts from the message suspicious, you are right, so do not wait and remove BSA virus from the PC:

Your personal computer has been noticed in viewing, storing and using of forbidden and pirate software, audio and video content.

You should buy MoneyPack code denominated of 250 dollars.

After entering, check correctness of the code number and press "OK" button. Your computer will be unlocked in 1-72 hours.
