Carabinieri Virus is a ransomware controlled by the clandestine Urausy Trojan. Do you know what a ransomware is? It is a computer infection which locks your computer and uses misleading information or scare tactics to fool you into paying a ransom. Paying fines and requested fees is not something you need to perform because they have been discovered to be useless. Do you want to pay a €100 fine and then discover that your PC is still locked? We are sure you do not, which is why we recommend that you delete Carabinieri Virus using automatic malware detection and removal software. Continue reading to learn more.
The clandestine ransomware uses a highly misleading notification which covers the desktop and blocks access to the computer. Unfortunately, schemers have utilized several different tricks to fool Windows users into paying the requested ransom fees. First of all, schemers have attached the credentials of authentic Italian Police and cyber protection departments. You may discover the logos and names of Arma dei Carabinieri, Copyright Alliance, Internet Police and Cyber Crime Unit. Note that these names have been illegally attached to Pašvaldības Policija un Drošības Policija Virus, Cyprus Police Emergency Response Unit Virus, and other ransomware which are linked to the Urausy Trojan as well.
One more trick that Carabinieri Virus schemers use is urgency. It is stated that if you do not pay the requested fine within the next 48 hours all of your files will be removed. Needless to say, most Windows users will be willing pay €100 just to make sure that their documents/files are safe and to restore access to their computers altogether. Nonetheless, it is clear that this is just a trick which is meant to push you into giving up your money, especially since the presented accusations are completely bogus as well:
Lei è accusato di visualizzazione / memorizzazione e / o distribuzione di materiale pronografico di contenuto proibito (pornografia infantile / bestialità / stupor, ecc.) […]
Inoltre, Lei è sospettato di aver violato la “Legge sul diritto d’autore e diritti connessi” (scaricamento della musica pirata, video, software senza licenza) […]
Ignore the bogus accusations and the ridiculous fine payment demands. Police would never ask you to pay fines via Ukash or Paysafecard money transfer systems, and so it should be clear to you that you need to remove Carabinieri Virus from the PC. If you are confident about manual removal and you are experienced with this task – continue with the instructions below to learn how to unlock the computer.
