The malware infects BIOS
So far about this mysterious application known very little, but, according to the victims, it is a malicious application directly affects the computer's BIOS.
Employees ThreatTrack Security argue that malware works on the same principle as any ransomware, but it does not require the victim to pay a certain penalty. Instead, when a person downloads the computer, the screen just shows the girl-DJ and the inscription "YOU STEAL MUSIC, I LOCK YOUR PC".
It is not entirely clear how it spreads malicious software. Experts believe that it is simply downloaded from a BitTorrent-sites together with another torrent. Remains a mystery is who is behind the virus. Perhaps to blame offended musician, whose work actively spread through pirate sites.
