Your computer has been locked Ransomware Removal Guide

News No Comments »

The Your computer has been locked Ransomware is computer infection that prevents you from accessing your Windows desktop, files, or applications until you pay a $300 ransom to the malware developers. This ransomware pretends to be a lock screen placed on your computer by the Department of Justice, Department of Homeland Security, and the FBI that states child pornography was detected on your computer. It then proceeds to state that you will face a $250,000 fine imprisonment from 4 to 30 years unless you pay a fine in the amount of $300. In reality, this is just a computer infection and not a legitimate government message, so you should ignore anything that it requests you to do.

As explained in this great blog article and site, this infection will also check your web browser history to see if you accessed certain sites. If you have, it will include the list of matched web sites in the lock screen to further scare you into thinking that your activities have been monitored. Once again, this is just the infection accessing your browser history and you do not have to be concerned about it.

Pale Moon 25.7.0 Released: August 26, 2015

Pale Moon: Release notes
25.7.0 (2015-08-26)
This is a bugfix and maintenance release.

Fixes/changes:

Code cleanup: Removed the (otherwise unused) visual event tracer code.
Code cleanup: Removed reflow performance tracing code (telemetry).
Fixed a key JavaScript bug where defining properties on an object would wipe the object.
This seems to be a common issue with “modern” libraries that use “define” instead of “change” and expecting the other properties on the object to be retained, resulting in “x is undefined” errors all over the place if the object is wiped.
This aligns the behavior with ES6’s “Validate and apply property descriptor” pseudo-function.
Updated the SQLite library to 3.8.11.1.
Added support for the element.matches() Web API function.
Added support for BASE tag parsing in source view. Previously, when viewing the source of a document, clickable links would be incorrect if a base path was specified in the document with this tag.
Fixed an issue with running timers after the computer would have been put to sleep with the browser opened.

Security fixes:

Added protection against potential bugs where our SVG mPositions is out of sync with the characters in the DOM. DiD
Fixed use-after-free vulnerability in XMLHttpRequest::Open() (CVE-2015-4492)
Fixed use-after-free vulnerability in the StyleAnimationValue class (CVE-2015-4488)
Fixed crash or memory corruption in nsTArray (CVE-2015-4489)
Fixed crash or memory corruption in nsTSubstring::ReplacePrep (CVE-2015-4487)
Fixed potential escalation of privileges or crash (out-of-bounds write) via a crafted name in MARs (x64 only) (CVE-2015-4482)
Fixed an issue that would allow man-in-the-middle attackers to bypass a mixed-content protection mechanism via a feed: URL in a POST request. (CVE-2015-4483)

DiD This means that the fix is “Defense-in-Depth”: It is a fix that does not apply to an actively exploitable vulnerability in Pale Moon, but prevents future vulnerabilities caused by the same code when surrounding code changes, exposing the problem.
