Poliisihallituksen virus. How to remove? (Uninstall guide)

removal by Linas Kiguolis - -   Also known as Ukash virus, Police virus | Type: Ransomware

Poliisihallituksen virus won't be missed by any PC user because it blocks down the system once it attacks it. Just like any other virus, this Finnish ransomware is used by cyber criminals to swindle the money by making users pay nonexistent fine. For that, Poliisihallituksen virus shows its misleadingly designed alert, which is filled with such details as PC's IP address, location, OS and similar. Besides, it lists various e-crimes that were supposedly done by a user. When infected with this threat, you can be accused for spreading copyrighted content, watching pornographic videos or simply spreading malware. Remember, you won't find a governmental authority that blocks computers with its notification and uses it for making users pay fines. Poliisihallituksen virus is a huge scam that has to be eliminated.

HOW CAN I GET INFECTED WITH Poliisihallituksen virus?

Poliisihallituksen virus uses the help of trojan horse when it seeks to infiltrate the system unnoticeably for the victim. This becomes possible when user tends to visit illegal websites or simply clicks on every pop-up advertisement that shows up during his/hers search sessions. Besides, you should also be very careful with email attachments because scammers have been actively sending infected mails filled with ransomware threats. As soon as ransomware gets inside the system, it blocks it down and starts showing its fake warning message that claims:

Titokonesi on lukittu turvallisuuden vuoksi allamainittujen syiden takia.
Sinut syytetään kielletyn pornograafisen aineiston (Lapsiporno/Zoofilia/Raiskaus jne.) katselusta/säilytksestä ja/tai levityksestä. Sinä olet rikkoneet lapsipornografian levitystä vastaisen yleismaailmallisen julistuksen ja sinut syytetään Suomen tasavallan rikoslain lakipykälän 161 edellyttämään rikokseen.

Please, ignore this fake notification because it clearly seeks the only thing – to make you pay the fine of 100 euros. Instead of doing that, follow this guide and remove Poliisihallituksen virus from the system.
