UK Police virus (also known as United Kingdom Police virus or Cheshire Police Authority Virus) is a dangerous ransomware, which belongs to a huge group of viruses actively locking computers down.

You may ask why they do that for. The answer is very simple - this virus seeks to take your computer a hostage and make you pay a considerable amount of your money as a fine. Please, never pay this fine, which is asked on United Kingdom Police virus alert because it's fake. This program is clearly developed by hackers, so you will only lose your money if you fall for it.

HOW CAN I GET INFECTED WITH UK Police virus?

Similarly to Police Central e-crime Unit virus, UK Police virus gets inside the system without asking user's permission. In most of the cases, it can be downloaded together with non-registered software,  fake updates and media codecs, or simply after you open an attachment of the spam email. Once this screen locker attacks the system, it disables computer's system immediately after that, and replaces computer's desktop with a fake notification titled United Kingdom Police. Additionally, it lists various articles that claim that user has violated UK's legislation by downloading, playing and distributing various content and software. Here's what it claims:

United Kingdom Police
