Police virus is also known as Police virus ransomware | Type: Ransomware | Tags: Ukash

Police virus has been aggressively spreading around and actively infecting computer users since the end of 2011. If you have also been attacked by this dangerous infection, you will definitely know how malicious this virus is: it not only displays a large alert, which pretends to be from a legitimate organization, but has also been reported to lock its target computers down. This virus claims that the user has been involved into distribution of pornographic material or other copyrighted content, and now, in order to access his desktop and applications, he must first pay a fine. Categorized as ransomware, Police virus has many versions that have all been used for the same aim – to make users pay a 'fine' in the form of Ukash, Moneypak or PaySafeCard voucher. However, none of them should be purchased because they fail to unlock computers and remove Police virus from the system.

While we haven't found that these programs are capable to steal your personal information or remove your important data from the target PC, it's almost impossible to ignore Police virus because of its scary message, which locks computer's desktop completely. Basically, user is disabled from getting online, reaching Task manager or any other application on his computer.
