Should your computer be blocked with a notification that says:
ATTENZIONE! Il Suo computer personale è stato bloccato per motive di sicurezza per le seguenti ragioni.
You are definitely infected with Arma dei Carabinieri virus. This malicious infection will try all its best to swindle you out of your money by forcing you to think that you have been involved in illegal activity. This computer infection belongs to Ukash Virus group, which is responsible for previously having infected computer users in Italy with Guardia Di Finanza virus, Polizia Di Stato Virus and other similar ransomware programs.
You need to remove Arma dei Carabinieri virus from your computer along with Urausy Trojan that distributes the malware. Naturally, it may be extremely scary to see a notification from the Italian police office on your screen, but a program created by cyber criminals cannot be related to law enforcement authorities and hence you cannot do what Arma dei Carabinieri virus asks you to:
La multa deve essere pagata da Lei entro 48 ore dopo la violazione. Una volt ache le 48 ore sono trascorse, per ulterior 48 ore saranno raccolte automaticamente le informazioni complete su di Lei, e Lei te sará perseguito.
La dimensione della Sua multa è 100€. La multa si può pagare con l’aiuto dei voucher PaySafeCard oppure Ukash.
To put it simply, Arma dei Carabinieri virus accuses you of storing and distributing child pornography, bestiality material, and other illegal content. According to this infection, you may face even an 11-year-long imprisonment sentence if you fail to pay the 100 euro within 48 since the infringement. The ransomware claims that you need to pay the fine if you want to unlock your computer and avoid criminal charges.
However, paying the money for this infection will not solve the problem. Arma dei Carabinieri virus will continue displaying the notification on your screen, no matter how much money you transfer via Ukash or PaySafeCard vouchers. Considering the fact that these alternative payment systems does not require you to use your bank account, Arma dei Carabinieri virus can collect money even from those users who do not have credit cards. What is more, since no credit card transaction is necessary, it may be impossible to reclaim your money, once you have paid the ‘”fine”.
The one responsible for your computer security is yourself, so you need to remove Arma dei Carabinieri virus from your computer at once, and then make sure that no other similar infection gets into your system. Make use of the instructions below to unlock your desktop and then terminate the ransomware program.
