FBI Virus or Malware on Android devices?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone heard of this? I've done a little research but it's not been much help. My son has a Galaxy Tab 3 and when it's booted it has his home screen for just a second and then this FBI screen comes up asking for money and so on...can anyone help me remove it please?

Personally never heard of it on an Android device....but did find this:

 

http://www.2-spyware.com/remove-fbi-virus.html

 

It contains instructions 1/2 way down (Header: Update 2) on how to remove from an Android device.

 

(This will help you get it into safe mode as required: http://www.samsung.com/uk/support/skp/faq/1028658 )

 

If that doesn't work; you may have to try a factory reset - But probably you'll need to reinstall the Original firmware from Samobile.

If you need to do that; open a new thread in the Mobile phone forum as you are going to need the latest version of Odin a windows PC and some help!!

 

I would also advise, once removed you install Lookout security app:
