Vanilla virus is a term used to refer to a computer infection that restricts the user’s access to the system, including Internet browsers and various programs. It is important to mention that the term Vanilla, or Vanilla Reload, refers to a prepaid money transaction system which is based on special cards that can be purchased from Vanilla Reload retailers. The service works in the same way as MoneyPak and Paysafecard, which means that a money transaction is made when the sender providers the money receiver with a unique code. If you cannot use the computer because some strange-looking warning is displayed on the screen, you should ignore that warning and take immediate action to remove the infection responsible for the display of the misleading message.
The term Vanilla virus should not be interpreted as an indicator that the service has issued some computer infection. So-called ransomware infections that freeze the system and provide the user with a full-screen warning that seems to be sent from the local authorities usually provide several money transaction options. It means that the victim is required to pay a certain amount of money in order to regain access to the system, and that sum of money can be paid via several money transaction systems. In the case featuring the Vanilla Reload service, the victim is also offered MoneyPak and REloadit as alternatives.
It is crucial to remove the so-called Vanilla virus because there is no other way to safely regain access to the system. You should not get intimidated by the warning featuring the logos of Vanilla Reload and other companies or services because they do not prove that the warning is legitimate. Malware researchers are already familiar with multiple instances identical or similar to the Vanilla virus, and we guarantee that there is no need for you to pay the money required because it is possible that no changes will be implemented within the computer after you make a money transaction.
