ICSPA virus (also known as International Cyber Security Protection Alliance virus) is a malicious infection that can easily get on your machine if it's poorly protected. When inside and active, this ransomware blocks the entire system down and then displays its fake alert that reports about various crimes and law violations. Please, don't fall for this scam because governmental organizations don't use such primitive methods when trying to make users pay the fines for them. It's clear that ICSPA virus is designed to steal the money from unaware PC users and it must be removed from the system without any delay. Of course, it won't be as easy as you may expect because this ransomware blocks legitimate applications, including anti-virus and anti-spyware programs. However, keep on reading and you'll see how you can overcome that.

HOW CAN I GET INFECTED WITH ICSPA virus?

ICSPA virus is distributed through the same methods as malware and spyware: it can be downloaded together with fake updates, media codecs, non-registered software, spam and through similar ways of distribution. Once it gets inside, this ransomware locks the desktop and disables computer's functions without any permission asked. Even more, it replaces PC's screen with an alert that pretends to be from International Cyber Security Protection Alliance and reports about various crimes, like the use of illegal software or distribution of malware. Please, keep in mind that all this activity is a huge scam that seeks to rip you off, and you should never pay a fine using Ukash or Paysafecard prepayment systems. Instead of that, you must remove ICSPA virus Trojan as soon as possible.
