Cybercrime Investigation Department virus is a ransomware that should never be taken as a legitimate warning got from the Cybercrime Department. This cyber threat is designed only to steal the money from unaware PC users, so stay away from paying the 'fine' for its invented crimes. It mostly claims that you have been illegally distributing copyrighted content, malware and doing other stuff and now you have to pay the fine through Ukash or other prepayment system. We recommend to ignore this request because none of the reputable institutions pick their fines in such way. However, one of its mostly annoying features, which can't be ignored, is its capability to lock the system down and disable user from doing anything there.

HOW CAN I GET INFECTED WITH CYBERCRIME INVESTIGATION DEPARTMENT VIRUS?

According to the latest reports, this Cybercrime Investigation Department virus attacks Canadian users. It typically relies on security vulnerabilities and uses trojans for its attack that usually stays undetected. As soon as it gets there, it displays its legitimately-looking alert which claims that user's PC has been blocked due to 'violating Copyright and Related Rights Law (Video, Music, Software) and illegally using or distributing copyrighted content, thus infringing Article 128 of the Criminal Code of Canada'. Finally, it shows the Ukash payment system window asking to pay the fine.

Instead of falling for this sneaky ransomware, we recommend to ignore Cybercrime Investigation Department alert and remove this annoying cyber threat because it's a true scam that seeks to get some money from you. Besides, it may also steal your credit card details and use them for the future crimes.
