Poliisi virus is a Finnish cyber threat that seeks to mislead users into thinking that they have some serious problems with Finland's Police. As soon as this virus gets inside the system, it locks computer's desktop, displays victim's IP address and lists a long list of the crimes that have been 'done' on this machine. Typically, it mentions the use of copyrighted content, pornographic videos or accuses user for the distribution of malware. In reality, all these statements are fake and are used to scare computer users into paying the fines through Ukash, Moneypak or other prepayment systems. Before you fall for this misleading notification, be sure that there is nothing legitimate about it. just like Polisen virus or Politie Virus, Poliisi virus relies on a trojan.ransomlock and seeks only to deceive its victims into thinking, that they must pay this fine. However, in order to unlock the system, you must remove Poliisi virus from your PC. 

HOW CAN I GET INFECTED WITH Poliisi virus?

According to security experts, Poliisi virus is spread just like any other Ukash infection. It relies on a trojan horse, which gets inside the system together with infected downloads. So, if you download unofficial software updates, shareware or various email attachment that are sent by the people you simply don't know, you are in a huge risk of getting this ransomware. Once inside and active, Poliisi virus blocks the entire system and makes you incapable to get online or use the programs installed on it. Instead of that, you will see only a fake alert seeking to get you into paying the fake fine of 100 euro:
