Federal Bureau Investigation is a fake computer message that is displayed all over the screen, successfully locking you out of your desktop. It is part of a huge Ukash Virus family. Despite its name, it is not really a computer virus, because it does neither infect nor change the code of legitimate files. Federal Bureau Investigation is classified as ransomware, because it blocks the computer and holds it hostage, demanding the user to pay a fine for a crime he did not commit.

Federal Bureau Investigation tells the scared user, that he might face an imprisonment sentence up to a few years, because he has been involved in illegal Internet activity. Then it says that if the user purchases a pre-paid debit card from Ukash and enters the numbers written on the card, he will be able to pay the fine and get his computer back. Naturally, this whole scheme is set up in order to steal money from innocent computer users. There is not way Federal Bureau Investigation would leave the computer after the ransom is transferred.
