Malware: The MonaRonaDona Extortion Scam

by Shanmuga| Tweet This | Google +1 | Facebook | Stumble It | Reddit | Digg | del.icio.us

"According to an analysis by Russian anti-virus maker Kaspersky Lab, MonaRonaDona is noisy because its author is hoping the victim will conduct a Google search for instructions on how to remove it. The second result in a Google search for "monaronadona" is a Digg.com article linking to an anonymous blog entry with instructions on downloading and using a product called "Unigray Antivirus." One blog claims Unigray "is considered the best for removing the monaronadona virus compared to the other spyware / antivirus programs." There are a few other prominent results that sing the praises of Unigray Antivirus, including a YouTube.com video.

What these results won’t tell you up front is that Unigray Anitvirus costs $39.90. It also fails to mention what Kasperksy analysts figured out on their own: That while Unigray Antivirus will in fact remove the dreaded MonaRonaDona virus, that is the only piece of malware it is designed to remove." – Content courtesy of The MonaRonaDona Extortion Scam – Security Fix

Thanks for the heads up. So far I have not seen that this Mona Virus is that big a deal. Maybe I just lead a sheltered life.
