Interesting.

I noticed there are no U.S. law enforcement agencies involved. trump probably gave them the okay for Amerikans to keep paying the ransom.

Make sure you spell it right because there are hundreds of sites just like it whose goal is to give you MORE ransomware.

exactly. Looking at that splash page where I am asked to click yes/no just looks like a phishing site

Wiki re Kaspersky Lab: In 2017, Kaspersky became the subject of controversy over allegations that the company has engaged with the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB), in the wake of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security banned Kaspersky products from all government departments on 13 September 2017. In October 2017, subsequent reports alleged that hackers working for the Russian government stole confidential data from the home computer of an National Security Agency contractor using Kaspersky antivirus software. Kaspersky has actively denied that it has such ties with the Russian government, but acknowledged that its software had extracted files from the contractor’s computer in the course of its operations.
