    What is the Koda virus?
    The Koda virus is ransomware alike the FBI virus, that uses ransom lock Trojans, and blocks (locks) computer systems from being used using a fake screen disguised as Koda (non profit copyright management), claims there is illegally downloaded (pirated) music on your computer which is a criminal offense under Section 106 of the Copyright law, and demands a fine of several amounts and currencies depending on the country of origin, determined by IP address, paid by either using Paysafe card, Green Dot Monepak Cards, Ultimate Game Cards, UKash Vouchers, and other online payment systems. Please note, paying the fine using the allowed payment system will not remove the Koda virus from your system.



    The claims made by the Koda virus on the fake prompted alert screen are false, you are not in trouble with Koda… but you do have a particularly dangerous infection and if the Koda virus is not removed, Koda ransomware is capable of destroying complete functionality of a computer system. The Koda virus also puts you at a very high risk of cyber criminal attacks concerning identity theft, credit theft, extortion, and more.

    The image above is a screen shot of a variant of the Koda virus. Screenshots of the Koda virus may appear differently but require the same removal instructions.
