How Can I Remove Gomasom Ransomware

Gomasom Ransomware Virus Information

Gomasom is a pesky ransomware attack which pops up a notification to users which pretends to be from Gomasom Ransomware but actually has no relationship with this official institution. Many victims from the United States of America have encountered and complained about this virus recently. Usually, it sneaks into the targeted computer without awareness via Trojan viruses. When Gomasom Ransomware is running on your computer, it will deliberately lock your computer and block you from assessing any program.

And then a warning message will appear on your screen, which claims that you are on suspicion of watching and spreading pornographic or violating someone’s copyright and you must pay $300 as your fine for these illegal things you have done. It also threatens to make you suffer from harsher punishments including sending you to prison if you refuse to pay. Besides, the fine must be paid only through Moneypak or Monegram. However, any formal and official institution will never charge fees in this way. This is nothing but a scam. And cyber criminals see it as a quick way to get rich profits. You should never be fooled by it, and all you should do now is to remove Gomasom Ransomware from your computer without any delay.
