It claims the user that the user has been watching Pornography of underage children, and it changes the Windows registry and adds malicious files to the startup, so your computer will load up a virus page rather than your desktop, even in Safe Mode. It also shows them pictures from the webpage, making victims think their actions can be recorded and transferred to the police database. It can also turn the webcam on automatically and display your infected PC's IP. It asks users to pay a fine of $100 within 48 hours, similar to FBI Moneypak.
