Malware Using Mandiant’s Name
Beginning Friday July 12th, Mandiant began receiving reports of malicious software or "scareware" incorporating the Mandiant brand. According to the reports we have received, users of infected devices experience a locked screen with a Mandiant logo and references to Interpol, the FBI and the "U.S.A. Cyber Crime Center." Infected users are presented with a message accusing them of breaking several laws, and indicating that their computer has been locked pending payment of a "fine."
