If you live in Malta, chances are you might get infected by Malta Police Association Virus especially if you are not careful when you browse the Internet. Luckily, despite its name, this infection is not a genuine computer virus nor does it have anything to do with Pulizija ta’ Malta. You can notice that you are infected with Malta Police Association Virus immediately and take counter measures. The reason why the infection is plain obvious is the fact that this program blocks your desktop access – Malta Police Association Virus is a screen-locker or a ransomware infection that holds your computer hostage, demanding a ransom fee that it indicates as a “fine”.

According to Malta Police Association Virus you are supposed to pay the fine within 72 hours, because otherwise your personal information will be transferred to law enforcement authorities (Pulizija ta’ Malta) and you will face criminal charges. Naturally, these claims are not true, as they are employed by all the other versions of Ukash Virus group infections. Malta Police Association Virus shares the same interface with Ministerstvo vnútra virus, and they are both directly related to Europol EC3 Virus, ICSPA Virus and many other malicious programs that have been created to lure out money for unsuspecting computer users. To make users pay the money, Malta Police Association Virus displays the following notification:

ATTENTION! Your PC is blocked due to at least one of the reasons specified below.

You have been violating “Copyright and Related Rights Law” (Video, Music, Software) and illegally using or distributing copyrighted content, thus infringing Article 128 of the Criminal Code of Republic of Malta.

Fines may only be paid with 72 hours after the infringement. As soon as 72 hours elapse, the possiblity to pay the fine expires, and a criminal case is initiated against you automatically within the next 72 hours!

The amount of fine is €100. You can pay a fine PaySafeCard or Ukash.

The poor grammar and syntax in the notification on your screen should be enough to convince you that Malta Police Association Virus is a hoax, and it is not sent by Pulizija ta’ Malta. The ransomware will never unlock your computer, so you need to restore desktop access yourself and remove Malta Police Association Virus from the PC. We provide instructions below on how to bypass Malta Police Association Virus defenses and terminate the infection.
