Bundesamt für Polizei virus (also called as CIBS POL. virus) is a Germain ransomware infection from Ukash virus group. The only thing it seeks is to get users' money, so it locks their systems down and then displays a misleading alert based on fake information about law violations detected. Bundesamt für Polizei virus uses a name of governmental organization and claims that user has to pay the fine for illegal activity on his computer. It's almost impossible not to notice this virus because it disables any access to the desktop and forces you to read its forged notification that requires to pay a fine of 100 Euros for unlocking the PC. However, no matter that this notification doesn't seem to be malicious, after paying the fine you won't have your machine unlocked.
