Interpol virus is the latest threat from Ukash viruses that lock computers down for invented law violations and then ask their victim to pay the fine through Ukash or Paysafecard prepayment systems. This Ukash virus works under the name of Interpol Department of Cybercrime and mostly attacks European and North American countries. Be aware that its alert, which typically reports that ‘Your IP is blocked due to at least one of the reasons specified below’, is completely fake and you must NOT pay the fine but remove Interpol virus in order to get your computer fixed. True, removal of this ransomware is especially complicated because of the computer’s lock down. However, if you have some knowledge about system’s architecture or you know someone who has some, you can easily get rid of Interpol virus.
