Policia Federal virus is also known as Ukash virus, Police virus | Type: Ransomware | Tags: Ukash

Policia Federal virus is a huge scam, so its alert on your desktop doesn't mean that Spanish or Mexican Police has blocked your computer. In reality, your machine is infected with ransomware virus, which has already been known as Cuerpo Nacional de Policia virus and La policia ESPAÑOLA virus. We have already announced about the lock down of its owners, but it seems that there are tens of their viruses that are still spreading around. In order to mislead their victims, Policia Federal virus shows a huge alert, which simply takes over the desktop and blocks other programs and connections. For trying to scare its victim, this Spanish parasite states that user is included to illegal activities, such as distribution of pornographic material, SPAM and copyrighted content. Of course, he is also asked to pay the fine using Ukash or Paysafecard. Please, never do that because you will support scammers! You must remove Policia Federal virus instead.In reality,

HOW CAN I GET INFECTED WITH Policia Federal virus?

Policia Federal virus is not the one that locks computers down. This job is done by trojan horse, which is called as Reveton or Lock.Screen. This virus gets inside the system via fake updates, spam or simply after downloading infected freeware or shareware. Then, it prepares the whole PC for Policia Federal virus and blocks it down with a huge screen reporting about invented law violations. If you see an alert, which asks you to pay the fine of 1000 MXN, you must ignore it, because it reports untrue. Here's what it typically says:

Policia Federal 
Su ordenador se ha bloqueado!
El funcionamiento de su ordenador fue interrumpido a causa de indices de ciberactividad desautorizada.
Los delitos posibles cometidos por Lid se indican abajo.
(...)
A la vista de Resolución del Gobierno de 22 de agosto se puede considerar todos estos delitos como condicionales con la multa pagada.
La suma de multa es 1000 MXN.El pago debe ser realizado durante 48 horas a partir de revelación de delito.

The Mexican version claims:
