Is your computer blocked by a message that says you have been involved in criminal activity? Do you live in Denmark? Then you are most probably infected with Dansk Rigspolitiet virus. It is a ransomware infection and it tries to steal your money by pushing you into paying a non-existent fine. The program comes adorned with the symbols of the Danish police office and users are bound to think that their computers have been locked by the law enforcement authorities. Nevertheless, that is very far from the truth and the sooner you remove Dansk Rigspolitiet virus from your computer the better.
Luckily, Dansk Rigspolitiet virus is not the only infection that locks down users’ computers out there, so everyone knows how to deal with it. If you are still wondering where the ransomware program has come from, the answer is really simple – Dansk Rigspolitiet virus is part of the Ukash Virus group, just like Computer Incident Response Center Luxembourg Virus, Police Judiciaire Fédérale Virus and many others. Such applications enter target computers via Trojan infections and other means of distribution. However, if Dansk Rigspolitiet virus has entered your PC via a Trojan infection, it means that the ransomware application is not the only malicious threat lingering in your system.
In order to protect your computer from further damage, you need to take care of this infection immediately. First and foremost, you must ignore the notification you see on your screen, because it is absolutely fake:
OBS! Computeren er blevet blokeret af sikkerhedsmæssige årsager anført nedenfor.
Du er anklaget for visning/lagring og/eller spredning af forbudte pornografi (børnepornografi/dyresex/voldtægt osv). Du har overtrådt World Declaration om ikke-spredning af børnepornografi. Du er anklaget for at begå forbrydelsen omhandlet I artikel 161 u strafferet af Kongeriget Danmark.
Basically, the message claims that you have violated the laws of the Kingdom of Denmark by owning and distributing videos on child pornography, bestiality and other illegal material. Dansk Rigspolitiet virus claims that it is the main reason why your computer has been locked and if you do not pay a fine of 1000 Danish krones within 48 hours, you will be tried in court. What is more, if you try unlocking your computer on your own, all of your data will be deleted with no hope to recover it.
Nevertheless, all these threats are absolutely groundless and you should not feel intimidated by them. In fact, you should follow the instructions below to unlock your desktop and then acquire a reliable antimalware program that will help you remove Dansk Rigspolitiet virus for good.
