Ministerio de seguridad virus (can also be called as PFA virus or Police Federal Argentine virus) is a malicious program. It may try to fool you into thinking that you have some serious problems with Argentina’s Police. That’s why it blocks the whole system down and then shows its officially-looking alert instead the desktop. This scamware typically claims about various e-crimes that have been noticed by police, and asks to pay the fine for initiating them. In most of the cases, it names the violation of copyrights law and requires paying 200 ARS or other reasonable amount of money from its victim. Please, ignore Policia Federal Argentina or any other ransomware if it gets inside the system and blocks your computer after that. If you think that paying the ransom will unlock your computer, you are wrong as well. For that, you must remove Ministerio de seguridad virus with all its infected files.
