Not satisfied with just showing the fake FBI note, the criminals behind one of the many ransomware campaigns going on at the moment are trying to assault the users' other senses as well.

According to Trend Micro researchers, the malware is delivered along with a non-malicious MP3 file that gets copied in the current directory of the malware, and it repeatedly informs users that their system is blocked because of a certain violation on the federal law they committed.
