Policia Boliviana virus. How to remove? (Uninstall guide)

removal by Julie Splinters - -   Also known as Ukash virus, Police virus | Type: Ransomware

Policia Boliviana virus is a dangerous ransomware, which can attack your PC if you live somewhere in Bolivia. It typically enters computers without being asked to do that and blocks the whole desktop (simply hijacks it) next. All this activity disables the whole system and leaves you without the Internet's connection and the ability to use your programs and files. Instead of that, you can only look at Policia Boliviana virus notification, which reports about various crimes detected. Typically, it accuses its victims for viewing child pornography, distributing malware, using copyrighted content and doing other online activities that are illegal. Additionally, Policia Boliviana virus asks to pay the fine of 100 dollars. Of course, this alert has nothing to do with the real Bolovian Police. You must ignore it and remove Policia Boliviana virus from the system.

HOW CAN I GET INFECTED WITH Policia Boliviana virus?

As we have mentioned, Policia Boliviana virus doesn't ask a permission when it needs to come. In most of the cases, it does that with a help of Trojan horse, which typically gets inside together with illegal information that can be found online. So, you can easily get infected when downloading illegal copies of audio, video files and software, opening spam and performing other online activities. Additionally, this threat downloads infected files of the Policia Boliviana virus and blocks the system. What user sees next is the fake alert that tries to look trustworthy. That's why it includes various logos and computer's IP address. Be sure that this message is used by hackers only to swindle the money in a form of the fine. Please, ignore Policia Boliviana virus warning, which accuses you of watching copyrighted content, distributing malware, viewing adult-related content and doing other invented activities.
