Malicious ransomware infections keep attacking oblivious Windows users, and this time it is the turn of Bundeskriminalamt Pressestelle Virus. The clandestine threat uses deception to trick you into paying fines for completely bogus cyber crimes. To ensure the success of the scam, the access to the computer is locked, so it seems that you have to pay the ransom in order to restore Windows functionality. Luckily, this is not the case, and there are a few simple steps which will help you delete Bundeskriminalamt Pressestelle Virus without wasting your savings. Before you commence with the removal, take another look at the misleading screen-locking alert:
Ihr Internet Service Provider blockiert
Die funktionen Ihres Computers wurden wegen unbefugter Netzaktivitäten geblockt
Alle rechtswidrigen Handlungen, die von Ihrem Computer aus begangen wurden, sind für die weitere identifizierung in der Datenbank der Polizei gespeichert worden, einschließlich Fotos und Video der Webcam. Ebenso wurde die Wiedergabe von pornografischen Inhalten mit Minderjährigen festgestellt.
Die Geldbuße beträgt 100€. Die Strafe muss innerhalb von 48 Stunden nach Sperrung des Computers beglichen werden.
Just like the recent FBI Paypal Virus, Bundeskriminalamt Pressestelle Virus uses false accusations to make you pay the bogus fine. Unfortunately, German Windows users also need to beware of Bundespolizei National Cyber Crimes Unit Virus, Bundespolizei Virus and other infamous Paysafecard Virus versions. This time, the malicious ransomware also uses the misleading webcam recording and intimidating statements about what can happen if you refuse to pay the fine or decide to remove the ransomware. All of this is bogus and you should pay no attention to any of the presented information. What would happen if you paid the fine? There is a great chance that the PC would remain locked. And what would happen if you ignored the threat? More dangerous infections could be infiltrated without your consent.
It is a must to delete Bundeskriminalamt Pressestelle Virus from the computer as soon as possible, and you can do this with the help of authentic spyware detection and removal software. You need to perform a few steps to unlock the computer and install the reliable tool (e.g. SpyHunter), and they are presented below.
