After some reasearch this whole case is nothing but a “hoax” of someone who apparently like to spread such kind of messages. 🙁 I have also post a Dutch message at PC Web Plus.
Today I came across a new malware (ransomware) variant in the Netherlands, and this variant is no ordinary ransomware like, Reveton, Urausy, Kovter or similar well known versions that pretends to be from the FBI, Department of Justice or other police departement. But this kind of ransomware with the message “You steal music I lock your pc” is not loaded from the systemdrive because when you disconnect the hard drive it will also display the “lockscreen” and it seems like that this malware variant has flashed the entire BIOS of the compromised system.
Another indication of a malicious BIOS modification or complete flash is the fact that the system BIOS is not accessible, and the lockscreen will appear after 2 seconds when the system is started. The screen with the message “You steal music I lock your pc” is not graphical but created with special characters and looks like a ANSI art creation.
This lockscreen is not comparable with the other ransomware variants, it don’t ask to pay a fine but it will only lock you out from booting you computer in the normal way. It seems, therefore that this malware is not designed by the cybercriminals to receive money but to make a system physically inaccessible.
Below you can see a foto with the message “You steal music I lock your pc” that is diplayed on the spur of the moment after starting the computer.
You steal music I lock your pc [HOAX]
On a few Dutch forums I have seen this kind of malware today, and after publishing the first message on a Dutch blog the first victims already reported this and started a thread for assistance, and for know the only things I know is dat the file lcrm.exe wil show the message that it is installed succesfully and it requires a restart of the computer. And after that it is no longer possible to start the computer normally.
Below some original links and Google translate versions of the threads.
