What is Dutch Police Virus?
Dutch Police Virus is called ransomware, because it's a scam. Cybercriminals made it so that you would believe it's real and give your money for them for literally - nothing. The trick about this ransomware is that it accuses person about some bad stuff that he might have done and it locks down the computer. Moreover, if you want to unlock it, it demands to pay a 100 euro fine. Of course you shouldn't pay it - probably by paying it your computer will still be locked until you remove this parasite.
