VIRUS STATING FBI LOCK DOWN

Computer screen went white and locked up.  Was on drudgereport.com.

My attempts to reboot showed "FBI warning, locked down for child xxxx".  Included with this message was numerous child xxxx pictures. 

I am posting this warning if you have children on the computer checking news sites.

The issue is now corrected.

The virus has nothing to do with being on news sites. If infected with it that same warning would come up no matter what page you are on.

Understood computer infected.  Just notification of where and when it hit.  Of course may have been there a while.  Have taken steps to clean out.  Hopefully they work.

Tks for the quick response.
