If the malicious Levis Locker Ransomware has locked your Desktop, you might think that your entire operating system has been paralyzed. The reality is that this devious threat creates an illusion that your system was locked just so you would feel intimidated and pay the money that is requested in return of the unlocking of the screen. According to our malware researchers, there is one simple move that you have to make to disable the screen’s lockdown, and we discuss this further in the report. While you can move straight to the removal guide below to get rid of the threat, we recommend that you read this report before you delete Levis Locker Ransomware. First of all, it is important that you become familiar with active threats to prevent them from attacking your vulnerable operating system in the future. Also, this report discusses other important things. If anything discussed is unclear for you, please use the comments section below to start a conversation. We are ready to answer all of your questions.
Immediately after Levis Locker Ransomware enters your operating system – and it could slither in along with other threats deserving of removal – it locks your screen. This is done by launching a window that takes over the screen and that cannot be closed. The purpose behind this screen-locker is to trick you into thinking that the only way for you to regain access to the Desktop is to pay the fee that is demanded. The creator of Levis Locker Ransomware wants you to pay 500 US Dollars, and that is an incredibly big sum of money. Unfortunately, cyber criminals do not reveal themselves fully as they introduce the ransom as some kind of a fine that you are legally obligated to pay. According to the fake notification on the screen, you have watched child pornography and other illegal content, and because of that, you are expected to pay the fee via MoneyPak. This money transfer system has been used by malicious ransomware infections before (e.g., FBI Virus), which is why we hope that most users will recognize the scam. Even if you are guilty of viewing illegal content online – and if you are, you should be ashamed of yourself – you do not actually need to pay the $500 ransom.
Levis Locker Ransomware pushes you to take action immediately with a timer running down on the same warning window. Well, what happens if the time runs out? What happens if you do not pay the ransom? Nothing should happen, but you should not just wait for the clock to run down. At the end of the day, malicious files are running on your PC, and you want to delete them immediately to prevent cyber criminals for initiating other malicious actions. Also, you should not postpone the removal of Levis Locker Ransomware because this operation is extremely easy. First, you need to restart your computer, and that is what will help you get rid of the screen-locking notification. Afterward, you need to erase the malicious executable that has launched the infection. That’s it! Levis Locker Ransomware is one of those infections that appear to be much scarier than they actually are, and we are hopeful that you can remove this threat without experiencing any consequences.
As mentioned previously, your operating system might be infected with other threats. Our researchers recommend installing a legitimate and up-to-date malware scanner to inspect your PC to check which other threats you might need to delete. A malware scanner can also help you locate the malicious executable that belongs to the ransomware. Remember that you need to get rid of it to have Levis Locker Ransomware removed from your operating system. Of course, a malware scanner is just an assistant that can help with the detection of malicious threats, and it is much better for you to invest in legitimate anti-malware software that can find AND remove active threats. Even if you handle the elimination of active infections manually, you need to think about full-time protection to ensure that malware cannot attack you again, and reliable anti-malware software can take care of this.
