Polis virus (or Polis virüs) is a dangerous program that should never be left on any computer. You won't fail to notice this scamware if it gets on your machine because it blocks PC's system as soon as it manages to enter it. Instead of your typical desktop screen, you will see only misleading alert claiming that Police or other official authoity needs from you some money. This 'fine' is usually required for invented crimes that have been supposedly detected on victim's machine. Typically, Polis virüs lists the use of pornographic or copyrighted content, distribution of malware and similar activities. Before you fall for this misleading warning, keep in mind that it's fake and has been created only to swindle some money from you. Polis virus belongs to the group called 'Ukash', which spreads translated FBI virus versions all around the world. You must remove Polis virus, which targets Sweden, Turkey and their residents, without any delay.

HOW CAN I GET INFECTED WITH POLIS virüs?

Polis virüs has been developed to use trojan horses for its infiltration. To be more precise, that's Trojan.Ransomlock. It gets inside the system without any permission asked together with freeware, shareware and unofficial downloads. Once inside, it locks the whole system and shows its alert, which is set for the only aim - to intimidate computer's owner into thinking that he has some serious business with Swedish or Turkey Police. Please, ignore all these accusations you see on your desktop because they have nothing to do with this official authority. Be sure that this alert is completely fake and should never pay this fine in order to unlock your computer. If you have been infected by Polis Virus, you should simply unlock your computer and removethis ransomware from your computer.
