Posts with the Ukash tag


Ukash is a dangerous group of ransomwares that are closely connected to Trojan.Winlock. These cyber threats tend to disable their target computers and hack the desktop so that the system seems to be physically shut off. As a result, victim becomes incapable to run any program installed on his/hers PC and sees only a huge alert, allegedly displayed by a local police unit or reputable department. The main aim of releasing Ukash ransomwares is the money, so alert, which is displayed by this program, tries to create an image that user has violated various laws and now has to pay a fine through Ukash or Paysafecard prepayment system. However, official institutions don't act like that. Ukash is a serious cyber threat that sometimes can't even be eliminated without a help of an expert.
